We are CORE Educational Services. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit whose mission is to increase and broaden educational opportunities for older youth in out-of-school time through strategic partnerships with non-profit and for profit organizations as well as schools and government agencies. CORE primarily serves low-income students of color eligible for free or reduced lunch. We provide academic enrichment, college and career preparedness programs, outdoor education, adventure retreats, arts and music courses, physical fitness, and leadership training before school, after school, and during weekends.
Founded and incorporated in 2005, CORE Educational Services, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, was created to fulfill a need for collaboration within the youth development community. Its founders recognized the value of joint ventures among service providers and invested time and energy in developing strategic collaborations. Members of the CORE board visited schools and district offices, attended youth development conferences, and hosted lectures pertaining to out-of-school time activities to develop strong relationships and alliances within the after school community. Ultimately, CORE created partnerships with non-profit organizations, for profit institutions as well as schools and districts in Los Angeles and San Diego Counties.
