About Partners at Learning

PAL is partnered with over 40 schools to be a part of San Diego's diverse communities. Students who participate in PAL programs have the chance to provide mentoring and tutoring to students across San Diego, and PAL offers a selection courses that help foster equitable learning practices in a variety of subject areas and disciplines.
What Our Partners Have to Say
"It's been a great source of motivation for my young students to see college students continuing in their learning process." -- Jonathan Ton, Principal, Montgomery Middle School
"I love to have UCSD tutors in my classroom. The tutors satisfy many different and important roles. The UCSD mentors extend my 'reach' as an instructor. Collectively we are able to interact with many more students than I could ever hope to on my own. The tutors, in my experience, are proven commodities. They are young men and women who have made the social and academic commitment to serve. My students always look forward to those days of the week when the tutors are present." -- Elisabeth Frausto, Teacher, Florence Elementary
