My child has participated in CIS for the past two years. His weaknesses are math and reading. The one-on-one instruction that he receives in math has made a significant impact upon his performance in the class and on assignments/tests. Each person has their own way of learning, what tricks help things sink in and what tools to employ to get through assignments. Your instructors have the know-how to impart their learning techniquies to CIS students to make a difference.

My daughter Brooke was in the tutoring class and it was a wonderful. they worked with Brooke thoughout the school year and helped her with any questions she had that did not get answered in class. She was able to finish the year with A, B and C's which is amazing. I love this program and hope it continues in the years to come. Darlene Armstrong

My son is one of the at-risk youth in Nassau County. This program has made a WORLD of difference in not just his grades, but his attitude as well. He has stayed out of trouble alot more also. Judy (the CMS sight coordinator) is great! She keeps me informed of not just his activities but anything else such as meeting etc. that may interest us or be beneficial to my son's continued improvements. This really is a great program and I urge anyone that needs additional help with their child's behavior or grades to check it out. Thanks!

I've been volunteering with Communities In Schools (CIS) of Nassau County since approximately 2008. Students are challenged by many aspects of life, including dynamics of academic standards, home, ecomonies, and, of course - the challenges of just being a kid! Communities In Schools lessens those challenges for these students, giving them the ambition and drive to overcome; to focus on what is important; to enjoy success, realizing they can achieve regardless of barriers that may be in their way. And you do not have to just take my word for it - emperical data shows student success, moreover, across the board. It's great to be on the side of the coin that assists in developing the future; it is much better, however, to see the kid proud, accomplished, and most of all, smiling!

As a parent of a former CIS student, I have not only seen the benefits of this program through my child. I get to see it everyday as I come to work as a volunteer. Each day dozens of kids come to after school academic assistance, where they each are making their own strides each and everyday. I know that what CIS Nassau provides for each student now will make a huge impact on their future.

I have been involved since i was 24 yrs old, I knew that i wanted to direct my time and effort to a charity that involved kids. After seeing the many different great organizations out there, i knew CIS was a place for me. The direct contact, support, mentoring and involement you can have with kids is what it is all about. Theis organization is impacting the youth of today and helping them to be succesfull in life.

I am a parent of two children in middle school. This is my sons third year in the after-school homework club and my daughers first year. I don't know what I would do without it!! Mrs. Pimpkin is wonderful and easy to work with, any problems or issues that the kids encounter are handled quickly and proffesionally. It's good to know that we have someone like her and this organization to help our children (and their parents) get through some of the most difficult and transitional years of their lives!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

It takes a lot of the pressure off. As the mother of a special needs child, it is a constant concern when it comes to education. CIS is doing a lot to make the school experience better, which I hope will lead to making it easier to keep my son in school

I am a retired teacher and have been a paid homework tutor with CIS for the past two years. The sixth grade students I have helped not only completed their daily homework, but have utilized the time to read Accelerated Reading books, start reports early, practice multiplication tables and prepare for statewide testing through booklets and computer work.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing the students grades improve each quarter that I worked with them.
