Community Engagement Opportunities

  • In The Cumberland Commitment: Strategic Plan 2026, 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. CCS has numerous ways that YOU can be involved and help build student success.

    There is a separate volunteer application for non-faculty coaches. If you're interested in coaching, reach out to the athletic director at the school you wish to pursue.

    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.
