After-school Enrichment


PAL After-School



Education Programs

The goal of the PAL After-school Enrichment Program is to make a positive difference in the academic learning success to include the arts, STEM, recreational and social development of youth in grades K-12th. Classroom breakdowns: Grades K-3rd, 4-5th, 6-8th and 9-12th. It was created with best practice research on education & life applicable skills programming using a framework of principles considered critical to a successful program. These principles include emphasizing learning as the central mission of the program; use of professional staff; small group instruction with high staff to child 1:15 ratio; providing a safe, secure, adult supervised environment; emphasizing parental involvement; strong collaboration with local schools and the community.

Dunn PAL After-school Program will have Enrichment Instructors, a Media Arts Instructor and a Culinary Arts / Garden Instructor on a regular basis to assist its members in performing well in the classroom. Dunn PAL focus is striving for better education and partnerships with the local schools to enhance the lives of our area youth while keeping our mission of Filling Playgrounds, Not Prison’s in the fore front. Dunn PAL is always seeking more volunteers to help educate youth in the Harnett County area.

If you are interested in volunteering you can pick up a volunteer application on-line, at Dunn PAL or call 910-892-1873.
