Mission: The mission of the sheriffs activities league is to invest in all youth of san mateo county by creating opportunities that guide them toward their full potential through impactful programs, which foster relationships between deputies, youth, families and the community.
Programs: The organization currently has 50 different activities offered in 12 chapters throughout san mateo county, ca. Sal programs are provided by sal staff, deputies, volunteers and in partnership with other organizations. Sal serves over 3,000 youth annually in waivered programs which are programs that sal does the primary supervision of the youth and needs a waiver for liability purposes. Sal serves an additional 8,000 youth in non-waiver programs that include school classes, presentations, events, play streets, movie nights and assembly targeted campaigns. Sal purposely offers a range of programs and activities in an effort to appeal to a wide range of youth and their varied interests and to meet the focus areas (listed below). We strive to have programs in each grouping in each chapter. The five purpose groupings are:physical activity (and sal healthy kids)education + artleadership + mentoringspecial eventsnon-waivered presentations and assemblies
WHAT DOES SAL DO WITH DONATIONS? HELP KIDS!!! It is a well established fact the presence of a caring, involved adult in a child's life - early and ongoing - improves that child's self esteem. This , in turn, reduces that child's juvenile delinquency risk factors.
To that end, SAL has been connecting "cops with kids' through a variety of sports, mentoring art and dance, healthy living, leadership and character development since its founding in 1997. This past year, we served over 3,500 youth throughout the county in SAL programs and an additional 10, 000 in school assemblies, classes, Play Streets, Movie Nights and other events.
