The New Light at Risk Intergenerational Outreach Program is a partnership with the Guilford County Schools (GCS) and New Light Missionary Baptist Church. It was designed to benefit middle and high school students who have been short-term suspended.

Throughout the program, students receive individual and group counseling, encouragement, mentoring, academic coaching, anger/conflict resolution and referrals to community agencies. The academic coaching is aligned with the NC Standard Course of Study so that students can stay connected with their regular class assignments.

Our goals are: to reduce the number of students who are suspended, eliminate recurring suspensions, and to increase the graduation rate in Guilford County Schools.

Students are referred to the program by the school principal, or his /her designee. Parents/guardians are then informed of this referral. Parent and students complete a short intake process, then students are enrolled in the program. Breakfast and lunch are provided.
