I know first-hand the quality work done by CIS, and the leadership and results provided by the Nassau County affiliate. In my role as a corporate donor for one of the world's largest companies, the impact on young people's live and their families was impressive. But they also were a great partner, ensuring our corporate interests were attended to, bringing us into the process - great organization!

I used to work for CIS Nassau as a high school career coach. There are so many students--from all walks of life--who are in danger of falling through the cracks in the educational system. The work that CIS does is greatly needed and makes a real difference in the lives of the students. I was especially impressed with how actively involved CIS board members and volunteers are.

This organization is wonderful and very well run. It offers a lot of very great opportunities to students who do not get as much attention as they should. These students are the up and coming generation. They are the future and they can succeed as long as they have the resources to learn and grow. that extra care that the volunteers and staff provide really helps these students to excel beyond their wildest dreams. Keep up the great work because you are doing a wonderful job!!

CIS Nassau is a high impact program involving support from both education and community leaders in Nassau County who have discovered the CIS formula actually works! Having served for several years on a board of education in another area of the country, I was pleased to find such a professional program that's getting high marks. Of particular note is the high level of enthusiasm shown by students and teachers alike. Let's support what works!

I have found CIS Nassau County to be a most excellent organization. Their philosophy about truly caring for students in need of help, whether educational or personal, makes me rate CIS five stars. I personally know of a number of students who have been saved from dropping out, after participating in a CIS program for remedial help, after school and during the summer break. Jean Pitcher
