Supportive relationships can build dignity, self-improvement, confidence, and a foundation for self-empowerment. Support transform students who are struggling with specific issues - with family, behavioral problems, school, friends, direction in life - into students who possess integrity, confidence, self-awareness (identifying their own strengths), and determination.
Outreach is the act of reaching out to another. Outreach is the first step in relationship-building. The COS provides services to students and their families who might not otherwise have access to specific services. The COS collaborates and utilizes different resources in the community to assist each student and his/her family's specific need(s).
