Join us for the 2022 PRPS Leadership Development Academy!

The PRPS Leadership Academy is geared towards up-and-coming leaders in recreation and parks or related fields who want to increase their personal capacity for leadership and efficacy. While focusing on developing emerging leaders, this training will also benefit current leaders who wish to improve their skills and effectiveness. The academy is a 15-week program featuring self-guided lessons, a 2.5-day workshop (Dec. 8-9), and assigned team and personal projects. The program uses John C. Maxwell’s book, The Five Levels of Leadership as a roadmap for participants to increase their influence and progress as leaders.

PRPS encourages all our Districts and Branches to seek out and sponsor either emerging or current leaders who may benefit from this academy. Applicants can either be sponsored by their agency, PRPS district, or branch or self-apply.   The deadline for applications is August 31, and the program begins the week of October 17. We hope that all of our districts and branches will participate in this effort to increase professional knowledge and capability in our field. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with Niki Tourscher if you need further information on this program.

The total cost is $400 and includes all materials, CEUs, meals and lodging. Participants are highly encouraged to apply for the PRPS Career Advancement Scholarship for a minimum of $200.
