Police Youth Alliance

Bridging the Gap

Founded in 2015, The Police Youth Alliance Program is an initiative of the Families Behind the Badge Children's Foundation designed to cultivate positive relationships and interactions between police officers and the children in the communities they serve. We believe that through nonconfrontational, student-appealing enrichment programs, students and officers can create a bond that will ultimately change the dynamic in disadvantaged areas of Philadelphia.

 

In response to growing tensions between inner-city communities and law enforcement in recent years, this initiative was designed to create opportunities, through educational enrichment activities, for uniformed police officers and students to interact in a positive manner. The expectation is to begin to change the current dynamic and bridge the gap between police officers and the communities they serve.
