The Center for Academic and Social Advancement (CASA) is a non-profit organization dedicated building communities through research, education, creative expression, collaboration and cross-cultural exchanges both locally and internationally.
We are committed to:
Providing university students the real world experience working in local communities and learning by doing "theory in practice"
Preparing P-6th graders to imagine their fullest potential in future learning opportunities and beyond
Inspiring social citizenship ( giving back to your community) in learners of all ages
Developing critical, innovative, and creative thinkers that will benefit San Diego county's future
Through collaborations with over twenty community groups and higher education entities such as the University of California, San Diego, CASA facilitates seven programs in five sites throughout San Diego County in order to serve hundreds of San Diego college students, children, and their families each year.
