Subject: PAL COACH APPLICATIONS ARE NOW LIVE FOR SPRING 2017!

Description:
The Peer Assisted Learning (PAL) program at the Learning Assistance Service
is a peer-to-peer academic coaching program, in which trained PAL coaches
assist UMD students in using effective learning techniques to improve study
skills and encourage their growth as learners.

Students engage in a semester-long, peer mentor training program, and are
able to volunteer (for a small stipend), or receive 1 or 3 upper-level
credits. PAL coaches also have the opportunity to become a certified mentor
by the Learning Assistance Service or the College Reading & Learning
Association (CRLA).

If you are motivated to learn how to support UMD students in developing their
time management, study process, organizational and exam skills, please see
the flyer here - http://go.umd.edu/palsp17

coach.
