Promoting Academics & Leadership in Schools (PALS)

“Poor academic outcomes, increased problem behaviors, higher probability of dropping out of school, limited employment opportunities, and a higher likelihood of living in poverty are all more likely to result following failure to acquire literacy skills in the early elementary grades.”

- Reading Comprehension and Fluency

By volunteering just one hour a week, you can make a difference in a child’s life!  Each volunteer PAL will be matched with an individual student and will be expected to attend weekly for breakfast or lunch and a reading or math session. PALS will serve as mentors at one of the following locations:
