Our children are important to our future. We believe it’s critical to ensure that all children growing up in the State of Florida have a chance to become contributing members of our society. In order for that to happen, we have to all take a part in providing the leadership they need to assist them in finding their path in life.
As an organization composed of business leaders in this community, we want to do all we can to support the goal of giving all the children in Pinellas and surrouding counties a great start. Here are just a few of the organizations that are doing just that — please join us in supporting them.
Pinellas County Sheriff’s Police Athletic League, Inc.
It is PAL’s mission to provide positive activities, academics, mentoring, leadership training, academic assistance, and life skills programming to Pinellas County youth. PAL’s education, recreation, community service, and sports programs serve as the foundation for the development of leadership skills, good citizenship, and good sportsmanship.
Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches
In 1957, a small group of Florida sheriffs saw the need for a residential care facility for troubled boys. With a little bit of cash and a big dream, they pooled their wisdom and efforts and watched their dream become a reality. Within a short period of time, they were helping many young boys turn their lives around to become productive and responsible adults.
Our goal is to develop young men and women who, because of the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches, are able to face the future with a sense of direction, ability and hope. We have been achieving the mission of preventing delinquency and developing lawful, resilient and productive citizens.
