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.
Congratulations to this week’s CIS Student of Success: Octaviea G.
This future Registered Nurse is a 17 year old graduating senior at New Hanover High School. Octaviea has benefited from the integrated student services of CIS at her school by working with her site coordinator to be matched with a tutor in chemistry and physics classes. Along with the academic support, Octaviea says her site coordinator is:
“Someone I can talk to openly and honestly about any & everything which allows me to make better choices outside of school.”
Octaviea often volunteers at CIS sponsored career fairs, special guest speakers and Sexual Assault Awareness Week at New Hanover High School plus community based events, like New Year’s Romp, that give her an opportunity to meet people in the community. With a bright future now in sight, Octaviea makes it known that CIS has helped deliver the reality of her impending high school graduation. Congratulations Octaviea! We celebrate your hard work and spotlight your success.
