December 19, 2019
CIS currently provides an Action for Success program in four middle schools, Waccamaw School (K-8), and Supply Elementary School that incorporates Success Coaches, community volunteers, and community partnerships to support student achievement. CIS assists Brunswick County students through tutors, mentors, 21st Century Community Learning Center After School program, Teen and Peer Court programs, and parenting education, with a major focus on dropout prevention services.
The Eshelman Foundation has been a generous supporter of CIS for several years through their grant opportunities. The Eshelman Foundation began in 2008 as a private family foundation that aims to help children in need. Based in Wilmington, NC the Eshelman Foundation focuses on children's healthcare and educational causes in the United States. The Eshelman Foundation believes that proper education and healthcare are absolute necessities in preparing children for successful and healthy lives. They are committed to supporting such efforts, as well as advocating for improved homelife and support systems for our children, who represent the future of our country.
The support of the Eshelman Foundation will help ensure at-risk students can continue receiving the extra support needed to be successful in school. CIS deeply appreciates the current and past support of the Eshelman Foundation in strengthening academic skills, positive social connections, and the emotional well-being of students in Brunswick County. The Eshelman Foundation mission is to strengthen North Carolina by improving the quality of life for children living in local communities through support of solution-based programs that focus on pediatric health care and educational-related issues. CIS deeply appreciates The Eshelman Foundation being #AllinforKids.
