One of our favorite days of the year is Career Day on Sea Island, made possible by our funding partners at Communities of Coastal Georgia Foundation. Approximately 30 of our junior and senior students From Brunswick High and Glynn Academy are selected for a special trip to Sea Island where they have the opportunity to learn about the company and the various job opportunities available. Students also get to shadow a Sea Island team member in order to learn about a specific career interest, and ask questions and receive feedback relating to that career. There are several CIS students employed with SI as a result of this exciting event!
Georgia PREP is a state administered federally funded initiative being offered in Glynn County designed to educate youth between the ages of 10-19 on both abstinence and contraception for the prevention of pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases.

Communities In Schools is the nation’s largest dropout prevention organization.
The mission of Communities In Schools is to surround students with a community of support empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.
By bringing caring adults into the schools to address children’s unmet needs, CIS provides the link between educators and the community. The result: teachers are free to teach, and students – many in jeopardy of dropping out – have the opportunity to focus on learning.
Communities In Schools of Glynn County works hard to ensure that every child needs and deserves these “Five Basics”:
- A one-on-one relationship with a caring adult
- A safe place to learn and grow
- A healthy start and a healthy future
- A marketable skill to use upon graduation
- A chance to give back to peers and community
