About the Program
Youth directors are aspiring leaders that desire to give back to the community by performing community service and learning how to develop skills in order to better their lives and effect change. Participants gain an appreciation for community service, its positive results and its importance to our great country.
When our youth directors serve the community, their good deeds are beneficial not only to the people they help, but also to the youth directors themselves. When many hands work together, much gets accomplished. That’s what the PAL youth directors are finding out as they pool their strengths and talents for their local and regional projects.
Members take trips to Orlando and other cities to attend leadership conferences which provide the youth with enrichment of becoming great leaders in the community.
Youth Directors Conference
An annual Youth Directors Conference (YDC) is held once a year at Walt Disney World in Orlando where all the local Youth Directors Councils from all 6 Florida PAL regions get together for group training, interaction, motivation, and fun. All youth directors involved in the conference receive a minimum of 5 hours of training each day in a classroom like setting conducive to learning and sharing.
