“Creating Leaders by Empowering Area Residents”
CLEAR Core, Inc. is a non-profit organization with 501©3 tax exempt status that specifically focuses on the support of higher education and enrichment programs for the youth of Lafayette County, Mississippi. It was founded by a group of concerned citizens from the town of Taylor, MS whose primary goal was to increase the number of local students entering college and universities. They recognized that many of its students needed encouragement and financial assistance without which their chances of entering college were strikingly dim. Since its inception, 75 scholarships have been awarded to deserving graduating seniors with retention and graduation rates approaching 75%. By increasing parental involvement and incorporating safety-nets, the graduation rate is expected to increase within the next five years.
The organization is exclusively committed to charitable, educational and scientific undertakings. CLEAR Core focuses on supporting higher education and enrichment programs for youth in Lafayette County, and creating support services for both youth and senior citizens.
