We work in schools in south King County where too many children and youth face high barriers both inside and outside of the classroom.
Our integrated programs help students and their families to build the skills and assets they need for academic and personal success.
Children and Youth
Education is one of the most direct ways out of poverty, yet too many young people in our community face high barriers to academic success. CSC reduces barriers and increases opportunities for children & youth to succeed in school and in life.
Academic Support builds on learning during the school day, and helps students from K to 12 develop their skills and reach their academic goals.
Out-of School Time provides abundant opportunities for after-school enrichment, recreation, peer support and leadership.
Health Support connects students and families to health care and promotes healthy live choices, so that students enter the classroom ready to learn.
Transition Support helps students stay in school with support during crucial transitions between elementary, middle and high school.
College Readiness assists students to set high standards and access post-graduation opportunities.
When families are fully engaged, children are more likely to achieve academic and personal success. CSC works closely with parents to gain the skills, information and access they need to become the leaders of their children's education.
