Communities in Schools
The Mission of Communities In Schools is to surround its students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.
The Vision of Communities In Schools of Cape Fear is to increase the success of students by providing exposure to academic and career opportunities, access to resources, and enable the development of "life sustaining skills".
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. With mentoring and tutoring support, students can concentrate on learning and educators can concentrate on TEACHING!
CISCF is a local affiliate of Communities In Schools, the nation's largest dropout prevention organization. For over 30 years, Communities In Schools has worked to ensure that every child needs and deserves these "Five Basics":
1. A one-on-one relationship with a caring adult
2. A safe place to learn and grow
3. A healthy start and a healthy future
4. A marketable skill to use upon graduation
5. A chance to give back to peers and community
All CISCF programming revolves around these basics and helping students stay in school. Every child needs and deserves the resources that make the difference between a graduate and a dropout. Get involved with CISCF and realize how education can dramatically alter a community, one child at a time!
