CREER Programs

Afterschool Tutoring Programs

CREER Afterschool Tutoring Programs Pre-K-12th Grades. Five Six-week Sessions Scheduled in 2018. Designed to close the gaps in the education of low income children enrolled in Spanish Immersion Programs that may have very little academic help from their Spanish speaking parents as well as advance them whenever possible. Strong emphasis in Math and Language Arts. Thanks to the strong partnership with CAPO Unified School District and Saddleback College, CREER has been able to expand this program to include: Math, Reading and Comprehension, Writing, Science, Pre-Algebra, Spanish, Music, Guitar, Drawing and Arts and Crafts.  

Homework Club

CREER Homework Club K-12th Grades is a School Year-Round Program. Students are given a safe and supportive environment and space for homework, studying, and learning. Volunteers mentor and tutor students in a by-weekly basis in the nearby “Castle” room in the Adult Education Building. Homework Club is free of charge.  

Summer Programs

CREER Summer Program Pre-K-12th Grades. One Six-week Session Scheduled in 2018. This program offers students a safe and supportive environment to encourage learning and creative expression, while reducing the risk associated with lack of parental supervision. Due to the generosity of the CAPO Unified School District, we are able to offer these programs at Del Obispo Elementary. At the end of every Summer Session we hold a closing ceremony, where all children have the opportunity to share their achievements and art works. This event offers a very unique opportunity for family bonding and community togetherness, while giving children a strong sense of pride and empowerment.
