The mission of the PAL® Peer Assistance and Leadership program is to enable young people to use their potential to make a difference in their lives, schools and communities.
PAL® courses use the potential of youth to make a difference in their lives, schools and communities. PAL® recognizes an innate capacity for social understanding, personal well-being, and community participation within every student. PAL® nurtures and builds capacities to help youth increase resiliency and build protective factors to help them achieve school and social successes which lead to a productive life.
This versatile course PAL® creates environments in which youth participate in productive pursuits with peers, using decision making, higher order thinking skills, and resiliency building.
PAL® students learn to adapt the power of peer pressure to influence others positively and, ultimately, they make a difference in the lives of others! Positive peer influence is utilized as a central strategy for addressing issues like bullying, low achievement, at-risk youth, drop-out prevention, substance abuse prevention, teen pregnancy, suicide, absenteeism, behavior problems, and other community issues.
Not only does PAL® address a variety of key youth issues, being a PAL® is also fun and transformational!
