RPAL has helped my family in so many ways. First and foremost, it has given my boys a consistent place to go to that has structure and discipline. We have found increased support for our whole family at RPAL from homework help, to boxing to parent classes. I have watched my children grows as individuals with character and responsibility. I would recommend RPAL to anyone looking for a consistent place to bring their kids that is safe, loving and full of community support offerings.
There are so many success stories with the kids and families at RPAl that I cannot count them. Great coaches, great staff, and great kids!! Not only is RPAL a fun, welcoming environment for any kid, but RPAL also provides info on resources which may be very helpful. It's a one stop shop.
I have been coaching at RPAL for nearly 5 years and can proudly say that it is an amazing organization. Being able to encourage and guide youth toward making good decisions and living a healthy lifestyle is very important to me. There is nothing more rewarding than when you have a youth who is so excited to show you that they can now do their first pull-up, handstand, etc. because of the time they spent participating in the athletic programs at RPAL. I can also speak directly to the tremendous benefit of connecting youth with their local law enforcement. I am a police officer and know that my behavior influences the youth and so I always try to be a good role model for them. Through the work of RPAL, youth begin to build positive relationships with police officers that will impact them for many years to come.
RPAL is a great program that services youth from all walks of life. Viviana and the rest of the staff do a wonderful job with the kids and do it all out of the kindness of their hearts. You can tell how genuine they are! They always go the extra yard to help a family in need!! Highly recommend this organization!
I've been around RPAL for nearly eight years now and it is an absolutely wonderful organization. Police officers and community members work together to build positive and encouraging relationships with local youth. It really is unlike anything you've experienced before, to see the way the youngsters look-up-to the officers, learning that cops are the best among us and they work for us to help our lives--these kids learn this important lesson and many others about life, education, friends, and sports. Go RPAL! Also, one last note: Vivi who runs RPAL is a tremendous person with a HUGE heart. She's the right person to run RPAL. The kinds, PD, and community are lucky to have Vivi at RPAL.
I have served on the RPAL board for several years. One of my favorite events is to attend the Swearing In Ceremony for our Roseville Police Department and to witness youth in Roseville who have graduated and now have become sworn officers and or staff members! This is a great organization I proudly support. David Larson
I have been a part of RPAl for five years, and have seen first hand the huge impact it has had on the Roseville Community. They do an excellent job of matching needs with resources and creating positive experiences for both children and adults as both participants and volunteers. Great people, great program!
My experience at rpal is unforgettable. Theirs so many things to do for example boxing or the summer program. Places like these are what make the community better and young teens and kids see what it's like to be around a lot of caring officers. Oh and Ms. Viviana is an amazing Rpal director.
Definitely a place I try to get my friends to go to with me. I love RPAL. Everyone is nice and helpful.
So grateful to have such a great program in our community. We have been wanting to get our son into sports etc to keep him from idol hands but haven't been able to afford it. And then we discovered RPAL!!! Such a blessing! Thank u to everyone who makes this possible!!
So glad to have this organization in our neighborhood! This is a HUGE benefit to the kids in our area!
I am a single mother to two. I am disabled and therefore cannot afford to providr all of the fun stuff their friends get to do. RPAL has been such a blessing for our family. They have provided them with so many opportunities they would have otherwise missed out on. From Ukulele lessons to basketball camps, Taekwondo lessons and everything in between my kids love this program.
Amazing family and community oriented place. Every time my family is there we are welcomed with open arms.
I am currently a volunteer, and I was a member that participated in various activities when I was under 18. RPAL is a fun and positive environment for youth who are often exposed to environments where there is a great deal of negativity. A lot of RPAL members are on juvenile probation and trying hard to turn their life in a positive direction, have parents in prison, live in high crime areas, or other family life problems. RPAL gives them a safe and positive place to go and are surrounded by great mentors.
