Program 1

In School Mentoring

School mentoring is currently being offered to students at Southern Middle School. Our mentors consist of community volunteers who receive an orientation and training from CIS of Moore County. All mentors undergo an extensive background check. Mentors meet one-on-one with their students 1 hour per week on Wednesdays and Thursday during the school year. The primary goal of the school mentoring program is to help students experience success in school. The CIS Mentor/Reading Buddies coordinator is responsible for the daily operation of the program.

Program 2

Community Mentoring

Community mentoring involves establishing a one-on-one mentoring relationship between a volunteer mentor and a student in grades K-12. In this program, mentors meet weekly with their students outside of school for up to 8 hours per month. Goals for the program include: building self esteem and confidence, goal setting, and encouraging students to be academically successful. Some students in the community mentoring program are referred by juvenile justice authorities due to student involvement in the criminal justice system. Community mentors must complete an orientation and training as well as pass an extensive background check. The CIS Community Mentor coordinator is responsible for the operation of the program.

Program 4

Transition Coaching

CIS of Moore County provides transition coaching to students at the Community Learning Center at Pinckney. The purpose of transition coaching is to help students at the CLC make smooth transitions to and from their base school. In addition, the transition coach can assist high school students in their transition to the workforce or opportunities for post-secondary education. The transition coach will meet with students on a daily basis, address acute concerns as they arise, and provide case management for individuals who are most “at-risk”. The transition coach at the CLC is presently funded by Moore County Schools and is considered part of the CIS staff.

Program 5

Moore Family Connections

Through a grant by the Department of Public Safety, CIS offers a parent and youth support class to families. Parents and children meet for 2 hours a week for 12 weeks and work on skills and techniques to strengthen the family unit. Communication, listening, problem solving, and conflict resolution are some of the topics covered. MFC is used as an intervention for families in crisis, as well as a prevention tool for families needing assistance. Refresher courses are offered at six months and one year intervals to graduates of MFC so families can ‘refresh’ their skills. A family style meal is provided in the beginning of the class. Transportation to and from the class, and childcare are also provided.
