Welcome to PAL!
Partnership for Adult Learning (PAL) is a student-led group that is part of Community Corps, a program of the Swearer Center for Public Service at Brown University. PAL partners with Perspectives Corporation, a local community organization that provides services and support to children, youth, and adults throughout the state of Rhode Island and with the goal of helping people with disabilities participate in and contribute to community life.
PAL pairs student tutors from Brown University with adults with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities living in the greater Providence community to meet on a weekly basis. Our mission is to provide an opportunity for mutual growth through personal relationships that are formed around the shared pursuit of continuing education. PAL practices a learner-centered focus in that we encourage learners to choose the topic(s) on which they will collaborate with their tutors throughout the semester.
Together, our learning partnerships work to empower one another, establish a supportive community, and expand our knowledge about academic subjects, job-related skills, hobbies and passions. PAL tutors and Community Corps students generally participate with their group between 2-3 hours each week during the academic year.
