Based on the success of our Women's Development programs PRS is looking to continue this success with men. To target the needs of men in our community we ask that you take a few moments to complete a brief survey. While your thoughts are of great value to us, your responses will be completely anonymous.
The majority of programs for men offer personal development after they have been arrested, incarcerated or experienced some form self-destruction or abusive behavior. By offering a program of development and prevention, we hope to equip men with other options for a healthy and empowered life.
Here are just a few of the questions we hope you will help us answer:

Can we create a development/prevention program dedicated specifically for men in Plumas County?
Would we be able to get enough interest and participation from men?
What would we need to do differently for men in order for a program to succeed?

Click the link below now to voice your opinion either using the online survey or print the PDF file to write your responses.
