Mission Statement

Capital Partners for Education mentors low-income high school and college students in the academic middle from the Washington, D.C. area to provide the skills and experiences they need to successfully complete college and to excel in the workforce.

Description

By 2020, roughly 65% of all new high-growth, high-wage jobs in the Washington, D.C. area will require a college degree, and earning potential is nearly double, on average, for college graduates versus non-college graduates ( Georgetown Public Policy Institute). Nationally 9% of low-income students earn a college degree compared to 77% of high-income students. Without this credential, low-income students cannot access the high-wage, high-growth jobs required to break the multi-generational cycle of poverty.

Capital Partners for Education (CPE) provides one-to-one mentoring and college and career readiness programming to 376 low-income students who are enrolled in 19 Washington, D.C.-area high schools (including D.C. public and charter schools) and more than 70 colleges and universities across the country. CPE helps its students graduate from high school and college with the skills and experiences needed to thrive in sustainable careers.

Over the past ten years, 97 percent of CPE students who graduate high school enroll in college and graduate at more than double the rate of their similarly-situated peers.
