Welcome to PALS
Pinkerton Academy and Little Students is a club that pairs Derry elementary school students with a Pinkerton high school mentor. Once a month, the Pinkerton Academy students travel to their assigned elementary school to meet with their little buddy and build a positive relationship. The older kids act as positive role models to their little buddies. In PALS, the big buddies and little buddies learn from each other. Both groups build relationships through fun and friendly interactions that carry into the future.

Commitment and Responsibility are key components in being part of PALS! 
The little buddies look forward to seeing their big buddies and we ask our members to be considerate of this and commit to our monthly meetings. Believe me, you will cherish them, too!
