PAL was founded back in 1997 with a primary goal to provide at-risk youth with meaningful recreation, educational, and cultural programs designed to keep youth away from the influence of gangs, drugs, violence and delinquent behaviors. Today, PAL now operating as the Ventura Police Community Foundation, plays an important role in Ventura’s Program Enrichment for After-school Kids (PEAK) Program. The PEAK program is a partnership between PAL, Ventura’s Parks, Recreation and Community Partnership Department and the Ventura Unified School District. The program proudly serves over 500 youth each day in a safe and supportive environment.

“It is the support of the sponsors, contributors, golfers, and volunteers who help to make this tournament and the Ventura Police Community Foundation a success. While we have many long time sponsors, I want to mention the long standing support of our Title Sponsor – Aera Energy. Aera has been a major sup­porter of PAL and the annual golf tournament since 1997,” said Police Chief Ken Corney. In 1999, PAL selected Aera as Humanitarian of the Year for its commitment to the citizens of the Ventura Avenue area. Over the years, Aera’s support has included the offset of startup costs for the program. In 1998 Aera donated funds to purchase a van to provide transportation to and from the program for area children and in 2016 Aera donated funds to build and equip a fitness area at the Westpark Community Center so that our local youth can be active in a safe environment.
