Sponsor Spotlight
On June 28th we closed off our 2017-2018 programming at Staples Workbar office in Brighton.

Cristina Gonzalez, Chief Legal Officer , and Kelly Mackey, Director of Category Development , shared their powerful journeys and career experience with participants from both our Community Based and School Based programs.

Introducing our youth to a network of powerful women allows them to envision themselves in positions of influence and that is at the core of our mission and vision.

Thank you for your ongoing support, Staples!
This past April, CP’s service-learning program  UWander served 130 young women and 120 young men in their third and fourth year of high school, engaging them with interdisciplinary projects such as innovative social-emotional workshops and creative writing exercises through a civic and social responsibility lens.
We look forward to expanding our program and serving even more youth in 2019!

Join us as we launch our new look, introduce our new leadership team and prepare for another successful year!
