Programme Overview

The Five Day 'PAL' Youth Leadership Intensive is a fantastic option to engage all participants in project leadership. This intensive programme develops young people's skills in team working, leadership, planning, and time management. It also assists with building motivation, self confidence, and social skills and competencies. 


Participants work together on a project of which they take complete ownership of, supported and guided by a facilitator and the candidate workbook. The ‘Leader’ designs and plans the project, the 'Assistant Leader' aids the Leader to ensure that the project runs successfully, and the 'Participants' take part in the project and start to learn the skills required to become a creative leader. The Leader has 36 active hours with the team to pull their exciting project together. The week will culminate in a presentation of the planned event.

Programme Content

Throughout the five day intensive programme, students will work together to produce a real or fictitious project / event. The leaders will take complete ownership of their projects, supported by a CEI facilitator and assistant leaders of the group. The programme culminates with a presentation of the creative project which can be demonstrated as a mock event or as a creative project. See below for an outline of the three levels involved in CEI's 'PAL' Youth Leadership Intensive.
