Community Volunteers; Get Involved!


Valuable mentorship is provided by screened and trained program volunteers who support the day to day operations at the youth center teaching classes, supervising children and tutoring. PALS also provides supervision and mentorship from college students and high school students who volunteer in their community while earning service learning credits at school. Our enthusiastic community volunteers are great examples of the value of hard work and the importance of community service. The success of our program is made possible by the contribution of their time and talent and the willingness to make a difference.

We Serve over 100 Kids per day but Impact One Child at a Time…

None of this would be possible without the generosity of the donors and partners who provide the much needed contributions in support of Devonshire PALS. PALS relies on private donations, an annual giving campaign, event fundraising and grants to fund our programs. Since our core programs are offered free of charge, we turn to our community for our support. A community that recognizes, your local PALS can’t do it alone. A community that recognizes, government services are not enough to impact change. A community that recognizes that achieving redefined outcomes in people’s lives affects all of us in the City of Los Angeles and beyond. That youth development is not only a priority for our city but in our local neighborhoods and we all experience its ripple effect.
