Annual Youth Directors Conference
Florida PAL Presents the 2019 Annual Youth Leadership Conference
It was the highlight of the year for many Florida Police Athletic League kids who gathered at Disney's Coronado Springs in Orlando, Florida, to be a part of the Florida PAL (Police Athletic League) Youth Leadership Conference (YLC) held from July 11-13, 2019. Twenty 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 would be to teach kids what it means to be involved in charitable work, how non-profit organizations function, and how to manage organizations of their own. He said that the Youth Directors' Program "gives Florida PAL an opportunity to work with kids on another level rather than always concentrating on athletics. Many kids are not involved in athletics and will have an opportunity to do some positive things in their community."

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."
