Prescott Area Leadership informs program participants about critical community issues and supports their acquisition of leadership skills. During the first year of the two-year program, participants take part in a two-day retreat, issue days, skills day, field trips, and a shadowing exercise. Discussions are led by community leaders and area experts and cover the following topics: criminal justice; social service/health; arts and media; government/politics; regional issues; youth; growth; business; education; and the environment. In the second year of the program, participants utilize the skills developed during the first year to guide incoming class members. Second-year participation requires that class members either participate in Central Yavapai Institute and give a written and oral presentation, or serve on a Prescott Area Leadership Inc. committee, attend an issue day and field trip, and give a written and oral presentation.
