Programs and Initiatives

Year Long Programs

P.A.L.S is a leadership program designed for upper elementary school students. This program teaches them to organize fun and active games on the school yard, at recess, lunch and beyond. If you have an existing Peer Mediation program at your school, as many schools do, P.A.L.S could compliment this by providing additional leadership training, and by incorporating more physical activity, working towards the common goal of more cooperation and friendly play, with less conflict on the school yard.”
