Changing the Picture for Education In NC Campaign
As kids around the country are graduating, Communities In Schools of North Carolina released a new report, Changing the Picture of Education in North Carolina, demonstrating our impact on dropout rates, highlighted by success stories. The report was released as part of the national public awareness campaign featuring young people who have graduated from high school as a result of their involvement with Communities In Schools.
“We use research-supported practices and evidence-based interventions, but at the heart of our model, it is the one-on-one relationships formed with students – this is what makes great things happen for kids of all ages,” said Eric Hall, President and CEO of Communities In Schools of North Carolina. “We have to meet the kids where they are and provide them with hope, care and vision of what the future could be. When we do, the results are amazing.” See the report!
