The Navigators program is an intensive mentoring and college success program for students in the 11th. Navigators receive the following services through college graduation:


  • Mentoring: Navigators are paired with college-educated volunteer mentors who will meet during monthly workshops and communicate weekly.
  • Individualized Staff Support: Navigators will benefit from CPE’s individualized support through school visits, student check-ins, report card reviews, teacher consultations, parent and student meetings, and academic intervention as necessary.
  • College and Career Readiness Programming: Workshop topics will be facilitated by CPE staff and partnering organizations and primarily focus on college readiness skills and the application process.
  • Financial Support: All students have access to transportation stipends and emergency funds for school supplies.

Once Navigators enter college, they can opt to join the Transformers program.
