With a rich history spanning more than 100 years, the Escondido Chamber of Commerce has been a driving force among the key players in developing and implementing positive actions, which lead to prosperity for the community, its businesses and its citizens.

The Escondido Police Athletic League (PAL) is a non-profit organization operating under the Escondido Police Foundation.

PAL’s main goals are to improve the confidence of children in low-income areas and provide children a positive relationship with the Police Officers and the community. PAL relies on educational and athletic activities to cement a bond between police officers and the youth in our community.

These goals are based on the conviction that young people – if they are reached early enough – can develop strong, positive attitudes toward themselves, their family, police officers and the community.

PAL emphasizes drug awareness and prevention, gang avoidance, safety awareness, anti-bullying, and the life skills needed for a successful future.

PAL operates on donated funds and is not part of the City budget. Through private donations, PAL is able to charge very low, and in some cases, no fees for the children to participate in this program.

No administrative fees are paid and no coaches or volunteers receive a salary from donated funds. All donated funds directly benefit the children. PAL consistently receives requests to add at risk children to the programs. The PAL program never wants to turn a child in need away.
