Prep says that its mission is to provide “historically disadvantaged students with the college and career readiness skills needed to become responsible and engaged citizens for social justice.” Diddy, who called education his “passion” in the video, said that he knows the value a great education can have on a child’s life, which is why he’s all in behind Capital Prep.
