PAL’s Harlem Center is where leaders are born. Located in the heart of Harlem, our center provides a safe haven for young people year round. The Harlem Center offers opportunities for academic growth and recreation, arts and crafts, step, and dance. We expand on each youth’s capabilities and empower them to strive to be their best. The Saturday Academy focuses primarily on the performing arts with choir, tap, jazz, hip-hop, modern, African dance, and Step classes. 

We teach our “Emerging Leaders” skills in leadership and communication as an example for our younger participants. Counselors and specialists work incredibly hard to ensure young people learn while having fun through tutoring, homework assistance, arts and crafts, music, drama, games, and recreation. Being a member of the Harlem PAL can lead to endless opportunities.
