United Way of Salt Lake is partnering with the City of South Salt Lake, Granite School District, and multiple community partners to support a comprehensive cradle-to-career pipeline for youth and families in South Salt Lake. Nine community centers serve as “hubs” of programs, services, and activities that ensure children are ready for kindergarten, kids are developing on track, students enroll in and graduate from college, families are financially stable, and families develop health behaviors and lifestyles. PAL Boxing Center is one of these nine Centers that provides tutoring, mentoring, and enrichment activities for youth in SSL. The collaboration with the South Salt Lake Police Department has been integral to the success of the program.
