Welcome to the

Pirate P.A.L.S. (Pirates Advocating for Learning Success)

Mentoring Portal! 

ECU Pirates P.A.L.S. make it a mission to serve children of Greenville by being tutors and mentors and reading buddies that educate, invest in, and inspire future generations of leaders. 

The vision of this program is to increase the academic skills and performance of elementary students within Greenville and the surrounding area.

Design for Change Mentor League 

A new mentoring opportunity this semester is the Design for Change Mentor League, in which a group of committed volunteers will work with about 10 students at the Police Athletic League South Greenville location. Volunteers will mentor these youth as they go through the Design for Change curriculum. This curriculum provides the youth with creativity, positive thinking, character building and allows them to develop an "I can" mindset.  This group will be meeting every Wednesday and due to the intimate nature of the mentoring group, we ask that volunteers commit to attending all sessions.
