HCS Crimson Achievement Program (CAP)

Support local students and schools! Become a role model and guide to promising high school students by serving as a Harvard Club of Seattle CAP Mentor.


Where Access Meets Inclusion! The Harvard Club of Seattle Crimson Achievement Program provides high-potential high school students (CAP Scholars) with the opportunity to gain new learning, receive mentorship support from Harvard students and recent grads, and participate in enrichment opportunities that support their path to college, including a 10th-grade field trip to Harvard and other Boston Area colleges. Drawn from Western Washington school districts that serve predominantly low-income populations, CAP Scholars, in turn, invest in the success of their communities by providing at least ten annual hours of peer mentorship and other service that promotes the college and career readiness of fellow students. CAP Mentors are expected to remotely check-in with their mentees on a monthly basis and in-person on an annual basis at group mentorship meetings (public health guidance permitting). To learn more about CAP, read this Harvard Gazette article and view this video.
