I have been involved with Communities in Schools since the program was brought to Nassau County. This is one of the best programs for drop out prevention that I have witnessed. The staff really are involved with the children and know them on a personal level. They work with the students and encourage them to excel. I highly recommend the program to everyone.

Dr. Dinwiddie and Mrs. Loyd work tirelessly, enthusiastically, and lovingly to help students in their program, and of course these students benefit enormously from their care and concern. One example of this is the tutoring program, which is held in my facility. The number of tutored students grows constantly, and with the help of the CIS program and tutors, students can be seen working hard to improve themselves both academically and in other ways.

The Nassua County Communities in Schools organization ranks as not only an elete local non-profit contributor to the educational and social welfare of our communities' children, its local leadership provides one of the best models I have seen for a non-profit service. The participating students' grade improvement results, from the after school programs, are impressive and speak for themselves. Our community is fortunate to have such a successful and thriving program.

The Great!

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

The Interview Challenge Program a couple of years ago. One of the participants, actually the winner of the challenge, is no working locally and demonstrating great success in his job.

My sons attended the CIS of Nassau County afterschool program for two years during middle school. CIS provided a great place for them to work on their homework. There was an experienced teacher there in case they had trouble. Attending the program and getting most of their homework done before they came home really helped lessen the homelife busy schedule. I would highly recommend the program.

The Great!

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

Tutoring services for my 2 sons.
