Working directly in North Carolina schools

The key to the success of Communities In Schools of North Carolina is in our name: community. We build one-on-one relationships with each student so they have an advocate and an additional support system. We bring community resources into schools to help students and families who need the additional support to remove barriers that stand in the way of education. We are a community of local, state, and national professionals who work together to help every child we work with reach their full potential and excel in the classroom and in life.
