Mission Statement

The specific purpose of APAL is to provide a common meeting ground for police officers, community volunteers and the youth of Albany in the areas of amateur athletics, educational, community service, and recreational activities.  In addition, APAL will foster and encourage sportsmanship teamwork, goodwill and fellowship.  APAL will provide facilities and supervision to enable youth who have or have not been able to enjoy participating in organized sports, educational, community service, and recreational activities.


The Albany Community Center was filled with young people and their families on Sunday, March 29, as the Albany Police Activities League celebrated another successful year at their annual Recognition Dinner.  After everyone had their fill of pizza, salad, and cake, the coaches and instructors of each APAL program spoke briefly about their specific activity and presented their participants with certificates. Albany Police Chief Mike McQuiston served as Master of Ceremonies with Lt. John Geissberger helping with the raffle and in the kitchen. 

The Albany Police Activities League is proud to announce that Anna Lee is the 2014 recipient of our scholarship.  The Albany High School graduate plans to attend UC Santa Barbara in the fall.

Anna’s many extracurricular activities in addition to her academic record made her an excellent choice.  She consistently was on the “Principal’s List” for academics since the 8th grade as well as the Honor Roll in the 11th grade.  She was awarded the Seal of Biliteracy in the 12th grade.  She has over 100 volunteer hours at Children’s Hospital.

Anna participated in a wide variety of student activities during her years at Albany High School including the Leadership council, and Speech and Debate Club.  In addition to her volunteer work at Children’s Hospital, Anna serves as the Bay Area Outreach Coordinator for the Wild Burro Rescue Sanctuary, taught Asian immigrants English and computer literacy, and assisted in several local Senior Care Facilities using her artistic skills to decorate and spending time visiting with the residents.

She founded an online store, the Wardrobe Café in 2013. Other work experiences include busgirl and waitress in a local restaurant and assistant editor of a yet–to-be-published book.

Anna attended the UC Berkeley ATDP (Academic Talent Development Program) for Architectural Design and Business and Finance during her high school career.

APAL is proud to have Anna Lee as our 2014 scholarship recipient and wish her success in her future endeavors.
