CLASP is an intergenerational program that provides community members and college students the opportunity to help young children in elementary school with their homework and to participate in meaningful volunteer work. Tutors serve as mentors and provide a positive relationship that is as meaningful as the academic tutoring. Once homework is complete, there may be time to read together, play word or number games and get to know each other. CLASP relies on our wonderful volunteer tutors and extends our appreciation to our 2022 - 2023 Tutors
On September 18 CLASP volunteers will begin tutoring students who need extra help with homework and academic skills. If you would like to be a part of this exciting way of helping students with their school work, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator at (909) 450-1079 or email@example.com. Support and training for volunteer tutors is a regular part of the program. Hours are generally between 1:30 and 4:30 in the afternoon on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Volunteers are asked to meet with their student for about 90 minutes, twice a week.
You will work in person or online with a child referred from Claremont’s elementary schools because he/she has great need for our services. Historically, CLASP serves children who come from approximately 80% low-income families and 90% from various minority groups. In addition, 25% are officially classified as homeless and 35% come from families with first languages other than English.
You may join us any time during the school year. For the sake of building strong and stable relationships, we encourage you to make a one-year commitment, or a minimum of one semester. Of course an occasional absence is understood if you have a conflict.
We frequently need substitute tutors, especially during college breaks. If you cannot make a weekly commitment, add your name to our on-call list. It’s a great way to become involved with CLASP!
Don’t let transportation be a hurdle. Let our Tutor Coordinator know if you need a ride, or if you can provide one to another tutor. If you would like to provide transportation for other tutors, please complete the Permission To Drive form.
To volunteer, please complete the online Volunteer Registration Form. Online is preferred; however, it could be printed and submitted via email or mail to the CLASP office. Click Calendar for view it.
