Santa Barbara Police Activities League Hosts Teen Dance

'Back-to-School' event treats youths to music, snacks and a raffle for a free bicycle

In keeping with its core value of providing quality experiences for area youth, the Santa Barbara Police Activities League sponsored yet another successful dance event on Friday.

The location was the Twelve-35 Teen Center, 1235 Chapala St. The theme was “Back-to-School,” the idea being to give area students something to look forward to doing on the weekend besides homework or cruising around looking for action.

More than 85 area teens joined the free event to dance, mingle, listen to their favorite tunes, or just to see and be seen. PAL organizers provided healthy snacks, a shuffling competition and raffle for a free bicycle.

PAL has planned many other teen events this school year, including organized sports and more dances.

The Teen Center is open from 3 to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday. PAL staff are always on hand to promote positive learning and mentorship or provide a listening ear.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
