CISGC Programs
Established in January 2004, Communities In Schools of Greenbrier County (CISGC) is a non-profit stay-in-school organization dedicated to:

"surrounding students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life."

In the past, the school was the center of community activity and in our vision of building sustainable communities, we once again look to the schools as the cornerstone of our project. CISGC works within the public system, aligning additional resources and support to schools so children can focus on their job: learning. CISGC works with educators, parents, community organizations, local businesses, government agencies, law enforcement, and citizens to provide individual, group, and school-wide programming.

CISGC current sites include:
Greenbrier East High School
Eastern Greenbrier Middle School
Western Greenbrier Middle School
Alderson Elementary
Crichton Elementary
Rainelle Elementary
Ronceverte Elementary
White Sulphur Springs Elementary

Targeted and Sustained Services for Individual Students
Each day, students come to school with unique, and sometimes unrecognized, challenges and struggles. CISGC strives to address the needs of students which keep them from fully engaging in the classroom. CISGC site coordinators create tailored case plans for individual students facing academic, behavioral, or emotional hurdles. Unique strategies are developed to provide the student, and their families, with whatever resources are necessary for them to meet their goals in and out of the classroom.
CISGC mentor programs enables students to develop a one-on-one relationship with a caring adult. The goal of CISGC mentor programs is to provide students with the support and guidance that may be lacking in their home environment. CISGC matches each mentor with a student based on similar personalities and common interests. Mentors spend approximately one hour once a week with their student.

Widely Accessible Services for Schools
CISGC provides needed resources and services for all students in CISGC schools. In collaboration with the schools and community partners, CISGC provides student's with physical resources (school supplies, books, etc.) and educational programming based upon the current needs and challenges of our schools.
Helping students prepare for life includes more than obtaining a high school diploma.  It means knowing how to work cooperatively with others, solve problems, and resolve differences in a constructive manner. CISGC is working with students to help them develop these skills.
CISGC currently provides group and school-wide programming on issues such as academics, truancy, social and emotional literacy, anti-bullying, cultural awareness, health and nutrition, conflict resolution, and enrichment and motivation.
