Adult Tutor Program - PAL

The Partner Assisted Learning (PAL) Program trains volunteer tutors to work with adult learners in the community.

Learners may need help with:

  • reading, writing or basic math
  • support with homework and studying
  • assistance with writing a letter
  • making a grocery list
  • using an ATM or budgeting
  • completing forms and applications
  • passing a driver’s examination
  • basic computer skills

Volunteer tutors are matched with learners and typically meet twice a week for an hour.   Tutors provide one-on-one encouragement to a learner in a mutually acceptable location.

To become a volunteer tutor, a free training program is provided.  Tutors in the Partner Assisted Learning (PAL) Program must be 18 years or older.
