Our Mission

Mission: To help elementary-school children enhance their academic, organizational and social skills by providing high-quality after-school programs in Claremont Unified School District neighborhoods.

Celebrate

Over 200 friends of CLASP gathered on September 25, 2016 in the courtyard of the beautiful new Studio Art Hall at Pomona College for a party chaired by board members Nancy Ambrose and Cindy Sullivan. Volunteer chefs Robin Leonard and Karen Rosenthal outdid themselves in presenting an hors d’oeuvres buffet, accompanied by wine from the Pomona Fairplex and beer from Last Name Brewery.

Volunteer

Join us as a Tutor. The more volunteers we have, the more individual help can be given to our students.

 Mission: To help elementary-school children enhance their academic, organizational and social skills by providing high-quality after-school programs in Claremont Unified School District neighborhoods.

In five neighborhood programs, CLASP provides safe, fun, friendly, and supportive settings for academically at-risk children from all of Claremont’s public elementary schools, so that they may gain the academic guidance and personal mentoring they need to be successful in school and in life.

The programs offer homework help, recreation, enrichment activities, and healthy snacks for two hours per day, three days a week. Transportation is also provided at four of our centers.

CLASP is a nonprofit, nonsectarian organization that collaborates with the City of Claremont and Claremont Unified School District, as well as local businesses, nonprofits, and regional foundations.  Individual donations are a major portion of CLASP’S budget.  

We appreciate your interest in CLASP.

Tutor Training #1

First tutor training to take place on September 21!

I love my tutor because when I come into the classroom ….I am the happiest person on earth, because when I don’t know how to do it, she teaches me in a way that nobody else does.

Without my tutor I would probably get my homework done, but I wouldn’t understand it.

CLASP is a real life changer. Before I was in CLASP I would never do my homework but when I entered the CLASP tutoring I started doing my homework.
