Career Awareness

PAL offers our youth ages 11-14 additional opportunities for age-appropriate enrichment as listed below.


  • life skills
  • financial literacy workshops
  • character and leadership development
  • career exploration, entrepreneurship
  • mural/arts tour
  • college tour
  • community service and others!


During the summer they visit businesses across all sectors of St. Petersburg and throughout the Tampa Bay area to learn about jobs in accounting, finance, legal, human resources, public service, architecture/engineering/construction, healthcare, the arts and more.

In addition, the group travels to local cultural attractions and events. These trips help our youth to dream big and engage them in experiences they may not have had without the  opportunities provided by PAL and our invaluable supporters!
