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.

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 trainings for our class of 9th Grade Trailblazers! This two-year mentoring relationship will include: monthly in-person meetings, quarterly staff supported mentor-mentee workshops, weekly email exchange via our e-mentoring platform, iMentor; and weekly phone calls.
