Shake Things Up! Be a Mentor!



Capital Partners for Education (CPE), the only combination scholarship, mentoring, and academic support and enrichment organization in the Washington Metropolitan area, is seeking motivated and committed professionals to mentor low-income high school students.


There are no special skills required to mentor a high school student. CPE mentors are ordinary people, 21 years of age or older, who want to spend quality time with young adults in their community. Becoming a mentor is a small commitment with a big impact. Youth who meet regularly with mentors have fewer absences from school, better attitudes towards school, more confidence in their schoolwork and have a better chance of attending college!


CPE asks their mentors to commit to:


* A two-year mentoring relationship

* Meeting with their student once a month

* Calling/emailing their student once per week

* Attending one new mentor training session


2005 Mentor Training Sessions Dates:


Wednesday, March 23rd 6:30pm-9:30pm

Saturday, March 26th 10:30am-1:30pm

Wednesday April 20th 6:30pm-9:30pm

Saturday, May 7th 10:30am-1:30pm

Saturday, May 14th 10:30am-1:30pm

Saturday, June 11th 10:30am-1:30pm
