Welcome to Partners at Learning
The PAL program, through UC San Diego's Education Studies, provides opportunities for UCSD students to work with underserved P-12 students and schools.
Every year students in UCSD's Service-Learning courses work with hundreds of students on an individual basis to provide mentoring and tutoring at more than twenty area schools, contributing over 20,000 volunteer hours.
Service-Learning courses provide students with an introduction to theoretical and practical issues in P-12 education by incorporating both academic work and fieldwork components into the course structure. When PAL began in 1991, the program consisted of one class and about a dozen students. Today, PAL has 9 classes and over 500 students each year.
