Riverside County PAL offers free flexible programming to local youth. Programs are curriculum based and separated by age group to allow for youth to learn from their peers in a safe age-appropriate space with positive role models. Programs offer engaging activities, structured discussions, and peer support.

Youth mentees and their families will receive invites to all PAL events and community workshops and will have the opportunity to participate in field trips to local museums, businesses, parks, and more!
The CPU consists of Deputy District Attorneys and SAFE Family Justice Center Nonprofit Youth Advocates working across the county to enhance public safety, help lower the recidivism rate, and prevent youth from becoming involved in the criminal justice system.
SAFE Family Justice Center (SFJC) is a non-profit community-based organization established in 1998 and specializes in providing domestic violence and at-risk youth prevention and intervention services to the community. In addition, SFJC provides services from four regional locations within the County of Riverside. The centers are in the cities of Riverside, Indio, Murrieta, and Temecula.
SFJC uses a multidisciplinary response framework that provides “one-stop shop” services to youth and adults from both government and community-based partner agencies who work under one roof to support the complex needs of at-risk youth and victims of abuse.
Services provided in the centers are trauma informed, client led, confidential, and limit the number of times that individuals must re-tell their story, ultimately creating a safe space for youth and family members to address the underlying causes of truancy and delinquent behavior.
