Project MOST, a 501c3 organization, was founded in 2000. Originally part of the East Hampton Day Care Center, its first class included 60 children from the John Marshall Elementary School in East Hampton. In 2005 Project MOST became a separate nonprofit and has since flourished; now serving three schools and over 300 children. Project MOST’s main goal is that no student is left home alone in our community after school. The organization offers programs such as mentoring, dance/music classes, karate and homework help. Most of this organization’s funding comes from public funding and specialty grants.
Hampton Racquet is located at 172 Buckskill Road in East Hampton. For more information, call 631-655-4586 or visit www.projectmost.com
