Adelphi University is hosting a SHAPE America Physical Activity Leader (PAL) ‘free’ professional development opportunity on Friday October 14, 2016 from 8 to 3 pm, which is co-sponsored by the Nassau Zone of NYS APHERD.

The Physical Activity Leader (PAL) Learning System is a dynamic, action-focused professional development resource within the Let’s Move! Active Schools framework.  This unique opportunity is designed to fuel sustainable change and continued leadership development. This is not a “one-and-done” training. Instead, the PAL Learning System is a 12- month journey that prepares you to be the best possible champion for physical education and physical activity in your community.  The PAL Learning System begins with a one-day, in-person leadership workshop. PAL trainers, materials, communications and logistical support are provided at no cost to ensure a successful day of development and learning for groups of 30-50 PALs.
