Mentoring Works! Virtually Mentor a College Student!

Founded in 1993, Capital Partners for Education (CPE) is a dynamic college preparatory program that helps motivated, low-income students in the Washington Metropolitan area to get to and through college by providing one-on-one mentoring, college and career preparation and support, individualized staff support, school partnerships and scholarships.
We are now hosting mentor orientations for our CPE Transformers Program. The Transformers Program consists of CPE students that have graduated from high school and want continued mentorship support in college. The Transformer Program requires remote communication through emails, texting, and phone calls, and quarterly in-person meetings. Transformer mentors follow these guidelines:
-Talk to your mentee once a week (on the phone or via Skype etc.)
-Meet up once per quarter
-Complete monthly online 5-minute surveys
-Complete check-ins with CPE Student Mentor Coordinators to see how the relationship is progressing

Register for one of our free New Mentor Orientations now!

We hope you will become part of our community and impact a college student’s life!

Got wisdom? We need long-term MENTORS for motivated low-income students!

Nationally, 41% of low-income students will enter college, while only 8% will finish by their mid-20s. In Wards 7 and 8, where the highest percentage of our students reside, only 1 in 3 students finish high school within five years, and only 1 in 20 high-school graduates earn a college degree within five years.

Since inception, 99% of Capital Partners for Education (CPE) graduates have gone on to college, and 70% have graduated on time.
