How You Can Help

Action for Success Program

Action for Success is an evidence-based drop out prevention program in all Brunswick County middle schools, Lincoln Elementary, Jessie Mae Monroe Elementary, Supply Elementary, and Waccamaw School that works by building relationships that remove the barriers to learning and improve ways our community responds to needs of at-risk students and their families.

Here are a few ways you can help:

  • Mentor a student
  • Tutor a student
  • Donate needed school supplies
  • Read to or listen to a reader
  • Furnish clothing for children in need
  • Join a child for school lunch (Lunch Buddy program)
  • Participate in Career Day
  • Donate financially to support the program

21st Century Community Learning Center – Supply Elementary

The purpose of our 21st Century Community Learning Center (21 CCLC) is to enrich the lives of Brunswick County elementary students academically, socially, culturally, emotionally and physically. 21CCLC, in partnership with Brunswick County Schools, is an after-school program designed to help students meet local and state academic standards in Reading and Math by offering a variety of activities that complement academic programs.

An array of project-based learning activities in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) related fields are designed to increase the participants learning and innovation skills such as creativity, critical thinking and problem-solving.

There are many ways you can help:

  • Donate program supplies
  • Donate board games, educational games and educational books
  • Recruit community partners to work with the programs
  • Volunteer to assist in the afterschool 21 CCLC program

Please Note: The 21st Century program at Supply Elementary ended in May 2023. Funding was not available to continue the program for the 2023-2024 school year. As soon as additional funding becomes available, CIS will apply for funding to resume this program. Please check this site periodically for updates.
