CISCF works in partnership with public schools to identify and connect students, many in jeopardy of dropping out, with the community resources they need to stay engaged in school.
CISCF offers programs in area schools and brings community resources, services, parents and volunteers together to help meet students’ needs.
We offer programs in After School, Non-Traditional Learning, Teen Parenting and Dropout Prevention.
Learn more about what each of these programs have to offer to our youth and how they can enrich their lives and their learning with help from the community.
Communities In Schools is a local non profit supported by grants, corporate and private donations.
CISCF always has a list of items needed to support our programs and our services to youth. In addition, cash donations are greatly appreciated and always go directly to the services we provide for our local youth.
This week’s Student of Success is LaNaijah, a freshman at the Career Readiness Academy at Mosley Performance Learning Center. LaNaijah’s positive personality is contagious and she has become a role model to many. She helps her peers want to do better and rise up – she is a true leader! LaNaijah loves her friends, the different teaching styles of her teachers, and LOVES math. LaNaijah grew up watching her uncle coach soccer to her cousins, which led to a love of watching the sport. She also is happiest being around little kids. After college, LaNaijah wants to be a software engineer. We can’t wait to see the great things LaNaijah will accomplish the rest of her high school career and beyond!
Sabrina Lee is a senior this year at Laney High school. She has grown up in Wilmington and has even lived in the same home since she was 1 year old. Communities In Schools of Cape Fear began working with Sabrina last year when she became pregnant. Since then, Sabrina’s Site Coordinators have been working with her to put a plan in place that enabled her to stay in school while pregnant and parenting. When asked what she liked about her Site Coordinators, Sabrina said “she would not be in school if it had not been for her Site Coordinators. CIS has made graduating become possible.” She went on to say that the BabyFast and Mother Reads programs have given her “a chance to talk to other girls about what she is going through as a mother.”
