PALS Program

Becoming a PAL volunteer mentor is as easy as spending a few hours two or more times per month with a child in recreational or learning activities. Whether it's teaching a new sport, fishing, caring for your pet, seasonal activities like carving a pumpkin or decorating for a holiday, making cookies, shopping, running errands, going a park or helping with homework --- a child would love someone to include them in their life.

The PALS Program started in 1977 as a service of Brown County Human Services Department. Prior to 1-1-2012 The PALS Program accepted referrals of children from counselors, schools, and parents themselves. After this date the PALS Program began matching only those children who are referred by Child Protective Services with an adult volunteer, couple, or family. The children on the Pals waiting list are ages 3 or older. We have a lengthy waiting list of boys and girls from families where there has been abuse, neglect, substance abuse, depression, or an absent parent due to death, incarceration, or abandonment issues.
