Subject: Peer Assisted Learning (PAL) Program is Looking for Peer Mentors!

Description:
PAL COACH APPLICATIONS ARE NOW OPEN FOR FALL 2016!

The Peer Assisted Learning (PAL) program 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 gain confidence in their
scholastic abilities.

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 achieving their
academic goals, please visit go.umd.edu/laspal or contact the PAL Program
Coordinator, Juliana Wong at [log in to unmask] for more information.
