C2 Partners

C2 Education Partnerships provide an ecosystem of opportunities for our students that expand beyond the school setting.  C2 works with leading organizations to enrich each student’s journey to college by offering valuable opportunities to engage and learn.  We are proud to partner with these organizations and we continue to seek new partnerships that will provide our students with ways to reach new heights in student achievement and growth.

For more than 20 years, Leadership Initiatives has partnered with outstanding middle and high school students to gain real-world experience, explore future careers, and experience life on a college campus. Participants in Leadership Initiatives’ (LI) Summer Internship Programs will have access to unparalleled mentorship opportunities with leaders from the D.C. Justice Lab, NASA, the Pentagon, Johns Hopkins Medical School, Homeland Security, the World Bank, and more. Unlike other education programs where simulations are key, LI students intern with leading law firms, business development organizations, security agencies, and hospitals to transform lives and expand their abilities. This real-world exposure cannot be duplicated with simulations or classroom learning.
