Who We Are
San Mateo PAL is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, founded in 1997 in collaboration with the San Mateo Police Department, and the San Mateo Parks and Recreation Department to keep our kids on track, in school and away from negative and troubling behaviors, such as drugs, gangs and poor choices.
We are a free membership based organization open to all youth ages 5 to 18 who reside or attend school in San Mateo. All San Mateo PAL activities are low-cost or offered at a nominal fee and further assistance is available with verified financial need. Over a thousand youth and hundreds of parents participate in San Mateo PAL activities every year.
