Youth Director’s Council

The Youth Director’s Council (YDC) is a youth leadership program for ages 12 to 18 that is based on community service.  Participants in the Youth Director’s Council receive training on such topics as empathy, leadership, citizenship, public speaking, financial responsibility, character, and other related topics.

The members of the YDC elect their own executive board.  The board is responsible for choosing, organizing, and managing projects.  During 2019, members of the Coral Gables YDC logged more than 1525 hours of community service at such places as Camillus House, F.R.I.E.N.D.S, Sunrise Community Centers, Citizens for a Better South Florida, Chapman Partnership for the Homeless, and the Junior Orange Bowl Sports Abilities Games.

Members of our Coral Gables Youth Director’s Council have also been chosen to represent our area on the state level on the Youth Advisory Council and the Youth Conference Committee, sponsored by the State of Florida Association of Police Athletic/Activities Leagues, Inc. (Florida PAL) Our YDC members also work with other local PAL YDC groups on larger community projects
