Mission Statement

The basic mission of DPAL is to offer youth in the Dunn area a viable alternative to the temptations of street life, which can lead to a life of crime, alcoholism, drugs, vandalism, and delinquency. DPAL keeps boys and girls active, interested, and busy through supervised, multifaceted programs geared to develop leadership traits and build good citizens for tomorrow. DPAL is dedicated to installing in our youth a value system that recognizes the need to respect and protect human property rights and to uphold and obey the laws of our city, state and nation.

The goals of DPAL are to: Establish trust between the Law Enforcement, Citizens, and the youth. To provide an alternative means of enjoyment, and education other than on the streets. To promote good clean fun, teamwork, responsibility, self respect and problem solving.

DPAL is a chartered member of the National Association of Police Athletic Leagues. DPAL is also a chartered member of the amateur athletic union (AAU). For further information on DPAL or to donate money, goods and services, contact the DPAL office at 910-892-1873 or email director@dunnpal.org .
