“A teacher affects eternity:
he can never tell where his influence stops.”
As a person that works with youth, you have the power and the amazing opportunity to make an ineffable difference in your community and in the world at large! There’s no way to measure the reach of the positive influence you can play in a young person’s life. Teaching is one of the most important but also one of the most challenging jobs in today’s world.

Empowering the leaders of tomorrow with PAL® helps to create environments in which youth participate in productive pursuits with peers, utilizing skills they learn like cultural competency, effective communication, decision making, higher order thinking skills, and resiliency building. PAL® students learn to change the idea of peer pressure to influence others positively and, ultimately, they make a difference in the lives of others.
In addition to the classroom format, it is also possible for adults to employ the versatile PAL® program in their communities through a club format. Whether it’s in the classroom or as a club, the adult who will be implementing this program MUST go through their Initial Adult Training through PAL® in order to stay in fidelity with the curriculum.
