The A Step Ahead Learning Center has served youth and adults in the San Gabriel Valley since September 1987. It started when Dr. Edgar, a clinical psychologist, and a group of community leaders became dissatisfied with the reported high dropout rates of children living in this area. They began research to find the most effective way to help children increase their achievement in school. Preschools, after school curriculum, parent training and summer camps have been provided to many families since that date. Our mission is to help youth and adults identify their natural talents so that they may use them in a positive way to become productive citizens.

We serve our community with arts, sports and mentoring programs. Our HotShots sports programs are for children 18mo. – 12 years old. The sports leagues include, Indoor Soccer, Flag Football, Baseball and Basketball. We also run a Karate/Self Defense program for youth and adults ages 6 & up, and a Fitness & Fun Camp during the summer. Click here for the flyer or register now.

The A Step Ahead Arts program (ASAAP) provides music/television production, Fall/Summer creative arts programs in the Pasadena Unified school district and television-acting workshops for youth & young adults ages 6 – 21 years old.

Our Young Voices mentoring program connects young men and women with mentors in their fields of interest. The Young Voices program has won several awards including: The LA County Anson Ford award for excellence in diversity and the National Communicator Award for education and arts. We are also a resource of education, behavior modification techniques, and employment for our families and community.
