Trenton PAL Scholarship Program
Partnerships in Programing
 In 1981, as part of our ongoing review and evaluation process, Trenton PAL recognized the need to provide services other than athletics. It was at that time the Scholarship Program was formed .

This program is open to  all  area high school seniors intending to continue their education at either a college or trade school. The scholarships are processed by PAL Scholarship Committee and awarded based upon academic achievementfinancial needas well as extra-curricular activities


To date, PAL has awarded $185,000 in scholarship assistance to deserving young individuals.

Applications are released in October of each year and are available through the school's guidance department, directly through PAL or by clicking the below link.

Past participation in Trenton PAL activities is not a requirement. 
Living Hope Racing School

Welcome to an exciting experience for Middle School and High School Students in Trenton, NJ. We help youth learn how to build, fix and race go-karts in a competitive setting. It is a great opportunity for urban youth to get into a field they usually don't have the finances to pay. We are located at the TRENTON PAL center at 401 Farragut Ave., Trenton. 

If you are interested and want to get involved as a student or adult mentor, please send us
an e-mail at: empower@livinghopetrenton.com .
Living Hope Empowerment Centerwas conceived in response to the increasing needs of lower and middle income, inner city families.  Birthed in Trenton, we endeavor to be a private, not-for-profit, faith-based organization whose mission is “to holistically empower urban families.”  Incorporated in 2006, the Living Hope Empowerment Center is intent on establishing collaborative partnerships with local organizations, churches, and private agencies, in order to offer a comprehensive range of programs and initiatives including educational, vocational, recreational, cultural, spiritual, and motivational training.  The Empowerment Center is housed in the Trenton PAL Community center in Trenton's East Ward.
Living Hope Summer Soccer Leaguewas  founded in 2005 for children ages 4-12. and has grown from 150 children to 230 with 16 sponsored teams. Through the volunteer efforts of people in the community and the team sponsorship of local businesses children have been able to grow in a safe, fun environment and at the same time learn about team work, responsibility and sportsmanship. It has created an environment for parents to encourage their children on the soccer field and at home. At the same time we are able to help families who may have a particular need and refer them to the appropriate agencies that will help solve their particular problems.  In the summer of 2011 a teen soccer program was added to serve youth
13-17 years of age.
