THE CHOICE BUS MAKES A STOP IN GOLDSBORO
Communities in Schools of Wayne County hosted “The Choice Bus” at Goldsboro High School on Friday, November 8, 2013. The Choice Bus takes students through a 25-minutes interactive presentation designed to show the relevancy of education to career choices and life-time earning potential. A full-scale replica of a prison cell furnished with actual prison fixtures is revealed during the presentation. Students were led in discussions about the importance of education, choosing friends wisely, avoiding gangs, being respectful to others, and having a career interest. The Choice Bus visit was sponsored by State Farm Insurance, the Mattie C. Stewart Foundation, and Communities in Schools of North Carolina.
About Communities In Schools
CIS is the nation’s largest dropout prevention organization. Our mission is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life. By bringing caring adults into the schools to address children’s unmet needs, CIS provides the link between educators and the community. The result: teachers are free to teach, and students – many in jeopardy of dropping out – have the opportunity to focus on learning.
For over 30 years, Communities In Schools has worked to ensure 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
