Uplifting Students Through Community

Join CPE for a virtual fundraising event that culminates all of the challenges and celebrations we’ve made it through, together. This is a chance to uplift students and celebrate their determination – it’s also a moment to uplift CPE, which without a gala last year and amidst COVID urgently needs support.

The last year has reminded us all about the importance of community and being connected to others.

No group of people have needed that sense of community more than students – specifically low-income Black and Brown students who have struggled with social isolation, loss of learning, and family challenges from job loss to death.

Our students have also lived through one of the most consequential and tumultuous years for racial justice, fighting to assert that #BlackLivesMatter. Yet through their grit, determination, and perseverance with support from CPE and mentors, our students have made progress – they’re succeeding and moving forward.

In spite of the challenges our students faced this year, 84% of our high school graduates enrolled in college and 29 college students earned their degree!

Our program was essential prior to COVID – now even more so, offering guidance and direct services to students so they don’t fall through the cracks. A portion of the donations received will go directly to help get students back on track by offering tutoring services to CPE students.

You can uplift students with your donation and participation in this event. Will you join us?
