Help a Student Succeed

June 19, 2017

Training sessions for volunteering with the local affiliate of the national Communities In Schools (CIS) network begin in August.

CIS in Charlotte serves more than 6,000 students who have some of the greatest needs but the fewest resources in selected Charlotte-Mecklenburg schools. CIS volunteers meet with a student a minimum of twice a month to help students build aspirations, develop interpersonal skills and set goals.

Volunteers are required to participate in a three-hour interactive training session before being matched with a student, plus a follow-up 90-minute training session within three to nine months after completing Session One.  The next Training Session One will be held at The Children & Family Services Center, 601 E. 5th Street at the following times.

  • August 31, 5:30-8:30 p.m.
  • September 7, 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
  • September 14, 5:30-8:30 p.m.
