22nd Annual Youth Directors Conference

Get ready for 4 days and 3 nights of training, networking, fellowship, and fun at the Walt Disney World Resort! Complete your registration paperwork, sign your waivers and "Start packing"! This year's journey will help our youth leaders and their Directors and Adult Supervisors realize the importance of Mental Health and Wellness.

Twenty-Two (22) years ago, the concept of a Police Athletic League program to teach leadership and community outreach was a brand-new idea in Florida. The purpose of the program is to teach kids what it means to be involved in charitable work, how non-profit organizations function, how to manage organizations of their own and be productive leaders in their communities and the world. The Florida PAL Youth Directors' Program "gives Florida PAL an opportunity to work with kids on another level rather than always concentrating on athletics. We welcome our athletes to join their local YD Council and we want to also involve kids that may not be involved in our athletic programs and will have an opportunity to do some positive things in their community."

Dates: June 17-20, 2021

Chat with the Florida PAL Alumni, Max Trapasso...Living His Dream

by Karen Fleming

"People sometimes believe success is a later-in-life thing that takes years to get to, and when you get there it's like sitting back in a reclining chair and counting the money that flows through the pipes in your house. But that's not how it works," Max said. "Success comes in stages and can happen at any time in your life."

"I consider myself to be successful now as I plan to be the first in my family to graduate college and I have a secure management job with the company I've wanted to work for since I was a kid. That is success for me, and success can be whatever you want it to be."

Max Trapasso is a FLORIDA PAL Kid!
