The application for Trailblazers applying to partner private schools for the 2017 – 2018 school year is now closed.
The Trailblazers program, is a mentoring and college success program that begins working with selected students in the 9th grade. Trailblazers receive:
- One-on-one mentoring: Trailblazers are matched with a college-educated volunteer mentor. Mentors commit to communicating with mentee once a week and meeting in person at least once a month.
- College and career readiness programming: Students participate in a suite of programs, including financial education classes, workshops, resume-writing classes, career fairs, and community service projects.
- Holistic staff support: Students receive individualized support from CPE staff through semi-monthly school visits, student check-ins, academic reviews, teacher consultations, and parent and student meetings.
- Financial Support: All students receive access to emergency funds for academic-related expenses.
Once Trailblazers enter college, they join the Transformers program and continue to receive CPE support through college graduation.
