Give Kids The World Village is a 70-acre resort providing memorable, magical, cost-free experiences to children with life-threatening illnesses. The Village is a place where families make memories and find joy, laughter and serenity.

On June 13, the FICPA invites Mega CPE Conference attendees and their families to help create a memorable evening for these special children. Anyone 14 years and up can volunteer to staff The Village and become an “Angel.” From driving the Village Train to scooping ice cream, there are many ways you can bring joy to the lives of others.

The FICPA will provide transportation between Disney’s Contemporary Resort and the Give Kids The World Village (located about 12 miles from Walt Disney World® Resort).
