Mission Statement:

he Colorado Association of Black Professional Engineers and Scientists (CABPES) is a non-profit organization dedicated to encouraging African-Americans and other underrepresented youth to pursue science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) careers. By doing so, the number of minority STEM professionals will increase to the level that better represents the minority population, while assisting industry in meeting the growing demand for STEM professionals.

Philosophy/Belief Statement:

Every student deserves the chance be successful in school. With the help of our math tutors, underrepresented students are more successful in STEM programs, finding scholarships for college and applying to college.

Program History:

CABPES was founded in 1980, to provide STEM support to traditionally underrepresented populations. We started with our Junior Engineers, Tomorrow's Scientists (JETS) program to provide exposure to engineering. But we realized the students did not necessarily have the math skills needed, so we developed our Math Enrichment Program. Even then, our students were not doing well on the college admission tests and needed help filling out applications and finding scholarships, so we created our SAT/ACT/College Preparatory class. And to help students maintain their math skills over the summer, we created our Summer Math Boot Camp.
