Enhancing educational experiences for students

CISNC staff promote student self-confidence and provide students a reason to believe in themselves. We help each individual student discover their own ability to succeed, whether that’s completing homework, learning new life skills or successfully graduating and unlocking a path to college or a successful career.

One-on-one relationships are at the heart of our work. Our staff form personal bonds with each student to gain a thorough understanding of their individual needs. We provide direct assistance and connect them to community resources so they can overcome barriers to success inside and outside of the classroom.

Our staff are trusted advocates and a valuable support system to students. We give them confidence to grab the reins and create the future they envision for themselves by wrapping them in supports:

Behavioral Intervention
Behavioral issues can be a result of emotional trauma in the home, environmental events, socialization challenges, or an inability to cope with a variety of situations in and out of school. We bring proven programs that encourage positive behavioral responses to resolve internal or external conflict with new skills to self-regulate and promote social and emotional growth. Learn how we make a difference.

Schoolwork help
Our staff find creative ways to help students progress academically by creating optimal learning environments.  We connect students with volunteer tutors and study groups to support reading and math skills, showing them the connection between what they learn in school and how it applies in real life.

Parental engagement
One of the many benefits to working with us and our affiliates are the programs and support services we provide to help parents or guardians be a positive, central force in their child’s education. When parents are involved in child’s education, students have greater success. See more about how we engage parents in the educational process.

Graduation success
We believe guiding students to graduation starts on the first day of kindergarten. At every grade level, we expose students to the endless possibilities that await them. Jobs for North Carolina’s Graduates nurtures each student’s interests through career fairs and programs that connect them with life opportunities and businesses across the state. Let’s improve graduation rates together.

Youth reentry
Reentry to Resilience (R2R) helps students successfully transition from a Youth Development Center (YDC) back to their home, school, and community.  Our staff build lasting bonds and serve as mentors to youth to connect them to the necessary resources and services where students can learn new social skills, overcome mental health challenges, complete their education, or transition into the workforce. Give every child the chance they deserve.
