A Youth Mentoring Program
The Orlando Police Department has established a new youth mentoring program,
Operation Positive Direction. Students have been identified from middle and high
schools throughout the city. The program will include mentoring, tutoring,
community service, goal setting and incentives for success. We have been
fortunate to receive some funding from community businesses to seed our program.
Operation Positive Direction will kickoff on May 17, 2008 at 9:00 a.m. Students
will participate in a community service project. They will be painting 3 houses
in Orlando, which are owned by senior citizens. We are introducing the students
to "giving back to the community".
The addresses of the houses that will be painted are:
• 910 W. Robinson Street
• 409 Gilman Circle
• 923 S. Rio Grande.
Operation Positive Direction has partnered with WFTV-9, Orlando Magic, Walt
Disney World, Ace Hardware, Target, Collis Roofing, Chick-Fil-A and Panda
