How is the PAL program funded?

The PAL program is a self-sustaining non-profit. Participants in the PAL program pay tuition, which is far less than the cost of equivalent off-the shelf programs. Tuition includes the 2-day leadership intensive retreat, all course materials, Yavapai College course credit, and a celebratory graduation event. Payment schedules can be arranged and a limited number of scholarships are also made available each year. Fund-raising events may be held to supplement PAL financial resources.

Who teaches the leadership skill development sessions?

Leadership skill development sessions are led primarily by PAL alumni who are professionals in the field of study or who have particular expertise in the topic. Some sessions are taught by staff of Yavapai College.
