Educational Enhancement

Tutoring is made available to students on a one-on-one basis or in group settings. Students are also given incentives to excel academically.

Supportive Guidance

CIS case managers work regularly with students on any issue of concern. Referrals to agencies are made for extensive counseling to the students and their families.

Pre-Employment Training

Staff persons offer pre-employment education to the students. Guest speakers present career opportunities          in CIS group settings.               

Parental Involvement

Parents are encouraged to be an intricate part of their child’s development, through parenting classes, home visits and various activities.

The CIS - Bay Area program is based on an evidence-based model of program service delivery.
