Welcome! ¡Bienvenidos!

Our Mission:

We seek to encourage diverse youth and their families to live, learn, love and embrace science and the environment as an everyday experience!

Why CLACE:

We are a Boulder-based organization that aims to support programs and organizations to be able to reach and impact Front Range students and their families while making sure that they learn and connect with the many opportunities being offered by so many cool programs in our region!

We also develop and bring bilingual and multicultural programs, opportunities and  experiences to underserved audiences.

What we do:

CLACE serves as a multicultural consultant to organizations wanting to further their mission to build earth stewardship by connecting youth and their families to nature in a culturally appropriate manner through, joyful, hand-on, place-based environmental education experiences

We develop and facilitates after-school programs that embrace STEM and environmental education enthusiastically, now being recognized as an integral part of not only the informal science education landscape but as important partners in the larger national efforts to improve STEM education.

After-School Experiences:

CLACE’s programmatic goals are to help students learn to value STEM subjects, become problem solvers and environmental stewards. We accomplish this by making sure to provide all our students with inquiry- based experiences that help develop their capacity to understand and interpret the natural world while acquiring the ability to reason scientifically. Observation, data collection and documentation, and bilingual communication are all skills that develop as students discover the ideas and concepts in our various STEM experiences and multicultural curriculum.

We are experts in:

Engaging community, through timely and effective strategies and approaches. We know how to make information valuable to principals who devote their energy and passion to the education of Latino-America’s children and their families. Our work is meaningful to the community and school systems, which must be fully supported while developing the next generation of stewarts.

Developing bilingual and multicultural curricula and STEM programing (K-12), Professional Development (workshops and Presentations) with an emphasis on best multicultural strategies, Family and Community involvement through nights and family events that bring real life transforming and empowering opportunities to all involved.

We must teach our children, to smell the Earth, to taste the rain, to touch the wind, to see things grow, to hear the sun rise and night fall, to care” ~John Cleal~
