CHARISM mentors work with students directly within their schools. We work closely with school administration and teachers to identify students who are disengaged from their education with poor attendance, behavior issues, and / or low grades.


The Check & Connect program “checks” and monitors students’ performance and the variables involved and “connects” with students and their families by developing strong relationships, personalized approaches, and goals to increase their network of support; resulting in increased attendance and performance.

CHARISM partners with Jefferson Elementary, Ed Clapp Elementary, Carl Ben Eielsson Middle School, and Fargo South High School.
