Uncommon Good
Connect to College Mentoring Program

It’s easy to make a big difference in a child’s life. To be a Tutor you just have to spend about 1 ½ - 2 hours a week helping a student with their homework and academic skills ( be 16 or older and have at least a 3.0 GPA if you are a high school student). You’ll most likely meet at school or a library, at a time that is convenient for both of you. This is a rewarding way to help a child who needs support and encouragement. So, whether you’re a high school student, college student, working adult, or senior, being a tutor is an ideal way to help a child achieve their dreams.

About Uncommon Good

Location:

211 W. Foothill Blvd, Claremont, CA 91711, US

Mission Statement

The mission of Uncommon Good is to break the intergenerational cycle of poverty and to work for the restoration of our planet. These two goals are intertwined, since the alleviation of poverty depends upon having a healthy earth with enough resources to support everyone. We accomplish these goals by helping underprivileged children succeed in school and go to college, by supporting young doctors who are bringing health and wellness into underserved communities, and through a variety of environmental initiatives.

Description

Our vision at Uncommon Good is to live in a community where every child, regardless of ethnicity or socio-economic status has access to a meaningful college education. To bring that vision into reality, the Connect to College Mentoring Program provides low income students in 4th - 12th grades who reside in the Pomona Valley with mentors who help them envision themselves in college, tutors to help them stay on track, college access through our high school scholars program, and real world learning experiences through our agriculture initiative. Our goal is to increase academic achievement and college access for our students by providing them with adult role models, supportive services, and educational opportunities.
