Commitment

The time commitment involved with the Prescott Area Leadership program is considerable and invaluable. Participants work together over the course of the year acquiring leadership skills and exploring critical community issues.

The program begins with a mandatory two-day retreat in August.  The Welcome PAL Class BBQ held in July is hosted at the Thumb Butte Picnic Area. There are nine Leadership Education Days, held once a month, beginning in September and concluding in May. The Education Days are usually held on the third Friday of the month. Program hours for the Education Days are typically 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The mornings are designed to focus on leadership skills training and the afternoons to address community issues. Synthesis Day and Graduation are celebrated in June.

Each class member will participate in field trips, service opportunities, a shadowing exercise, mixers/events, and program support activities. Class members will be encouraged the following year to volunteer in the community, support PAL, and guide the members of the next class.
