Who We Are:

65% plan to earn a STEM degree

99% of alumni felt that CPP provided the resources and support to apply to college

Who Are Our Volunteers:

Every summer dozens of volunteers donate thousands of hours, both in-class and remotely, to fulfill our mission of supporting and encouraging under-served students who have the desire and academic potential to excel in college, but who lack the mentoring and resources necessary to succeed.
