Join us at Wrightsville Beach on January 1st and kick off your New Year by Plungin' for a Purpose!
The 6th Annual Wrightsville Plunge benefits Communities In Schools of Cape Fear, which works to help keep kids in school, and on the path to graduation. What a great way to support our region's youth, and have a blast at the same time!
Festivities begin on the beach at 11:00 behind The Oceanic, between public access #'s 36 & 37. The Plunge will take place at Noon.
The mission of Communities In Schools of Cape Fear is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life. To fulfill our mission, we place staff inside targeted, high-need public schools, who work directly with vulnerable students and those with the greatest risk of dropping out throughout the school day. We empower over 1,000 students to stay in school and on the path to graduation each year. Our trained student support specialists do this by partnering with counselors and teachers, mobilizing the community to offer extra support, and doing whatever it takes to help students succeed. Our unique model works because it’s based on national research, driven by community relationships and supported by local resources. Current programs include Student Support Specialists at 13 area schools, afterschool programs and remote learning labs at 6 schools in Pender County and at our downtown youth center, WIRE; and programming to support and empower teen parents.
During the 2019/2020 school year, we reached over 13,000 students with general supports such as delivering basic needs and school supplies and facilitating career fairs; and we case managed an additional 1,126. Of those, 93% graduated; 99% stayed in school; 88% improved academically; 74% improved attendance; and 93% improved behavior.
