The Leadership Academy concentrates on character development and serves as a precursor to our core curriculum. It also provides PEP a longer period of time to address the behavioral and character issues that are critical for long-term success in PEP. The Leadership Academy utilizes The Principles of Effective Leadership and Men’s Life (also known as Men’s Fraternity: The Quest for Authentic Manhood). All participants are expected to “live out” PEP’s 10 Driving Values, which are based on Scripture and deeply rooted in Judeo-Christian principles. These 10 Driving Values include: Integrity, Accountability, Wise Stewardship, Love, Fun, Fresh Start Outlook, Servant-Leader Mentality, Innovation, Execution and Excellence. We work with each individual to identify and remove the character traits and behaviors that stand in the way of positive life transformation.
