The Power of a Relationship
We empower our students to believe in both themselves and their future by matching them with a mentor from the local community who will provide the support, encouragement and stability that may be missing from their lives.
Students in Kindergarten through 12th grade are referred to CIS by teachers and administrators who believe they will benefit from a one-on-one relationship with a caring adult. Students who qualify for enrollment in CIS may be experiencing a variety of life situations, including:
- Poor academic achievement
- Repeated behavior referrals
- Excessive tardiness and absences
- Unresolved social or health situation
- Family in crisis
We currently administer programs in 24 schools in both the Lexington City and Davidson County systems. We choose which schools to open programs in based on their free/reduced lunch rate, which correlates to the percentage of children in each school who live below the federal poverty level.
