On Thursday, July 8th, six students from the Communities In Schools of Moore County COMPASS Project kicked off their service project with a tour of the Sandhills Moore Coalition for Human Care. After a video presentation and a walking tour of the facility, the students left with an better understanding of what the Coalition does for our community.
COMPASS Project students incorporate The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Teens written by Sean Covey into their mentoring program. This trip helped the students to incorporate the 7th habit- Sharpen the Saw by renewing and strengthening their heart and soul. This trip was a prelude to the service project that the COMPASS students will begin in the upcoming school year. They will collect canned food, monetary donations, and awareness for the Coalition throughout the school year.
The COMPASS Project is a mentoring program at Southern Middle School. If you would like to mentor a student, help make a donation to the Coalition, or need more information, please contact Dr. Robin Moore at 910-638-8223.
