BENEFITING: Center for Supportive Schools

EVENT DATE: May 21, 2016

THE STORY:

Please support Miriam, Alex, Amelia and Zvia of Kinvolved who are raising for a great cause: the Center for Supportive Schools!! 

CSS helps schools leverage student leadership as a powerful force to combat disengagement and drastically improve the school experience.

Here is a description of their work: 

Studies have found that 40 to 60 percent of U.S. high school students—not counting those who have already dropped out—are chronically disengaged from school.  We are facing a crisis of disengagement in our nation’s schools, a crisis at the root of students dropping out of school and other high-risk behaviors.  CSS responds directly to this crisis.

In partnership with schools, we reimagine what it is to be a student.  We do this by helping schools leverage the leadership potential of students so that rather than simply receiving educational services, students team up with faculty and staff to create vibrant learning environments.  We believe that students have the potential, with the help of caring adults and in the context of supportive school communities, to drastically improve the school experience for themselves and their peers and serve as a powerful force to combat disengagement and its contributing factors.

Schools accomplish three critical goals when they develop students as leaders, immersing them in leadership roles:  1) students become more closely connected with school and more deeply engaged in their own learning, which research makes clear leads to greater academic achievement; 2) students develop leadership, social/emotional, and non-cognitive skills that research shows are critical to college and career success; 3) schools help solve for their resource constraints by adding many, many more helping hands. 

Our work has been rigorously evaluated by research organizations, universities, and independent evaluators. Results consistently demonstrate improvements in students’ leadership, academic, social, and emotional skills that lead to: significantly lower dropout rates; improved grades; fewer discipline referrals; and avoidance of high-risk behaviors.
