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.

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 11th Grade Navigators! This two-year mentoring relationship will include: monthly staff facilitated workshops, weekly email exchange, and weekly phone calls.

    I mentor with CPE. They are great. Highly recommend.

      I’ll second that. Worked with them when I lived in D.C. and what they’re doing is impressive. I’m still in touch with the kid I mentored …
