Community Engagement Opportunities

  • In The Cumberland Commitment: Strategic Plan 2024, the Cumberland County Schools (CCS) identified four strategic priorities that when implemented, will help all students. 


    Priority number four is Committed Community. The goal is to collectively engage schools, parents and the community in building student success.


    The CCS has numerous ways that YOU can be involved and help build student success. Have you ever thought of being a mentor? A mentor serves as a role model for a young person. With the support of a mentor, a young person is more likely to make positive choices and stay on track. How about being a volunteer? There are lots of ways that you can volunteer. Do you like to read? We need reading buddies. How about just being a caring adult who can come and spend time making a child feel special. Someone to listen to them, encourage them, and cheer them on. We also have the School Angels Watch Program. You can be a part of making sure our students, staff, and campuses are safe throughout the day! 


    Are you a part of a local business or church? We encourage business and faith-based partnerships. Make a difference! Adopt a school, sponsor a club or an afterschool activity. Ever heard of Back-Pack Buddies? You can be a part of ensuring that children from low-income households have nutritious, kid-friendly meals for the weekend! 


    We encourage you do get involved. The children of today are the leaders of tomorrow. Do your part to encourage them and help them meet their goals.

    Note: Any North Carolina adult who knows or should have reasonably known that a juvenile has been or is the victim of a violent offense, any type of sexual offense, or misdemeanor child abuse must report that information to law enforcement. Failure to report is a criminal offense, and the law provides civil and criminal immunity for reports which are made in good faith. No relationship is required between the juvenile victim and the perpetrator in order to trigger the duty to report.


You can be a mentor and make a difference in the life of a child.
