Fill out the application here.

The 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. This training, while focusing on developing emerging leaders, will also benefit current leaders who wish to improve their skills and effectiveness.  The academy is a 13-week program that features self-guided lessons, a two-day workshop (Sept. 10-11) 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 a leader.

PRPS encourages all of 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 July 15, and the program begins the week of July 28.
