What We Do

We place staff inside targeted, high-need public schools, who work directly with vulnerable students and those with the greatest risk of dropping out throughout the school day. We empower over 1,000 students to stay in school and on the path to graduation each year. Our trained student support specialists do this by partnering with counselors and teachers, mobilizing the community to offer extra support, and doing whatever it takes to help students succeed. Our unique model works because it’s based on national research, driven by community relationships and supported by local resources.

Interesting Info

During the 2019-2020 school year, we served over 13,000 students with widely accessible supports, and case managed an additional 1,126.
93% Graduated; 99% stayed in school; 88% increased academics; 74% increased attendance; 93% improved behavior.
We support young parents and their families across New Hanover and Pender Counties as well.
