The purpose of the program is to teach the juniors and seniors leadership skills and how to mentor their peers and younger students. The students go through 10 week training, in class, to prepare to be mentors at Stephanie Cravens Early Childhood Academy and King Middle School. They also do community service, volunteer at the High School, Elementary Schools and the Early Childhood Academies. They also attend the annual PAL conference in Austin every year where the kids get to interact with other PAL students from all over Texas in team building activities as well as character building activities.
