PAL’s 2017 summer curriculum theme, “Music From Around the World,” provided the opportunity for boys and girls from 21 PAL centers throughout the five boroughs to learn about a wide variety of global music genres. All summer long, children explored the history, culture, sports, food, holidays, festivals, government, geography, climate, economy and customs and languages of each music genre through a fun-filled, interactive learning curriculum. PAL kids in Manhattan learned about music from around the world including Classical/Opera music in Europe; Jazz in the United States; Mariachi music in Mexico; and Reggae music in Jamaica.

New York City’s Police Athletic League is the first and finest civilian-run PAL in the country. Founded in 1914, PAL has served the city’s young people for over 100 years.
