CIS Greater Greensboro

Our Work

Ensuring student success is everyone's job: schools, parents and communities.

Different kids have different needs. Some need academic help; some need a stable home and food on the table, or someone who will listen and help guide the way. Others just need a pair of eyeglasses.

Helping kids move beyond their circumstances requires an individualized approach, not one-size-fits-all. We treat young people as individuals and coordinate support around their specific needs.

Coordinated, individualized approach; it's what makes us effective.

Our Approach

We believe that every child needs and deserves these Five Basics:

A one-on-one relationship with a caring adult

A safe place to learn and grow

A healthy start and a healthy future

A marketable skill to use upon graduation

A chance to give back to peers and community
