The Dominican Law Enforcement Officers of Florida Organization is dedicated to helping our youth develop into productive members of society. DLEOFL’s mission has always been to coach, mentor, and encourage education while discouraging drugs gangs and criminal mischief. In these efforts we have established a youth development program that focuses on education, discipline and motivation. These three elements are key to constructing the necessary foundation for young adults to achieve all their goals and dreams.
YOUTH DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
Our goal with the DLEOFL youth development program is to reach as many children as possible and positively impact them through our efforts and affirmative approach. As professional members of law enforcement we are trained to recognize unsettled behaviors that trouble many young adults, and if left unaddressed can lead into potential negative behavioral issues that dangerously affect a child’s development.
This Program focuses on working in local schools, communities and public libraries, in conjunction with other youth agencies and organizations.
