Pomona Hope


Claremont Colleges

The Claremont Colleges are a historic and valued partner to Pomona Hope. Pitzer, Pomona, Harvey Mudd, Scripps and Claremont McKenna Colleges have been the source of numerous teaching interns, committed volunteers and even staff over the past 15 years. The Claremont Colleges partner with Pomona Hope in the following ways:

  • Scripps College
    • SCORE (Scripps Communities of Resource and Empowerment) interns lead weekly College Success workshops each year, mentoring our students through the college application and admission process. SCORE interns lead discussions on choosing the right college for you, homesickness, financial aid and much more!
  • Claremont McKenna College 
    • WeThrive workshop leaders empower High School students at Pomona Hope to build their very own socially-conscious start ups. In the 2018-2019 school year students are creating basketball camps for middle school students, designing and selling promotional materials for the Center Street Community Garden and tackling issues of homelessness and hygiene in their own neighborhoods. 
    • SOURCE non-profit consulting advises Pomona Hope on best-practices for social media, personnel policies and provides localized research for grant writing, tracking and volunteer training.
