The 2023 RISE – the CFSS’ signature event – will be held July 31-Aug. 2 at the Gastonia Conference Center. Registration is free.

RISE training focuses on the resiliency, information, support and empowerment needed when supporting children and adolescents in schools and communities. This training offers a range of sessions covering the issues of bullying, suicide, opioid and substance use, critical incidents and other vital information about trauma and victimization among children and adolescents, and how these various dynamics impact school climate and school safety.
