The goal of PRLS, begun in 1993, is to provide a set of training sessions
wherein current and future Rotary leaders could learn to become more
effective in their leadership roles. The basic PRLS course consists
of a one-day event covering five sessions: "Leadership," "Leading a
Meeting," "Public Speaking," "Rotary, Your Club and You," and "Communications."
This program was specifically developed to train individuals whose
goals include a future leadership position in Rotary. They learn skills
that will make them more effective in that role. The instruction was
carefully designed to improve individual leadership skills that are
broad based and not just Rotary- specific. Participants have found substantial
value in the many practical applications of information presented throughout
the curriculum. The program's blend of curricular theory and practical
application skills helps prepare students for success in any leadership
This PRLS program offers practical training in professional circumstances
that can benefit anyone on both a personal and professional level.
