Communities in Schools offers a great program to help kids succeed. Knowing someone cares and shares in their successes can make substantial difference in their ability to achieve their dreams making their lives and all around them positive and productive members of their community.

The Great!

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

talking with the kids who are in the program and hearing them talk about what kind of a positive difference it has made for them.

My name is Molly Jefferds and I worked in Nassau county as a Career Coach at Fernandina Beach High School and I loved every minute of it!!! I was truly inspired by this community that immediately stepped up and got involved with the students when asked. Their desire to help really made my job easy and I think it gave the students the impression that they were worth it. I am so proud of so many of the students who stepped out of their comfort zones and put their all into the Mock Interviews or took the time to really listen to a Career Speaker. These students are our future and I am so proud to have had a hand in paving the way for them.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the lives of so many young people. While CIS does a fantastic job of stretching the money they do have, the impact would certainly multiply if they were given the opportunity to grow.

Ways to make it better...

Communities-In-Schools had access to more money. As a former staff member I would have liked to have taken students on college visits, brought in motivational speakers to help prevent students from dropping out of school, and more.

CIS Nassau is one of the reasons the School District of Nassau County continues to be an "A" school district. By meeting the supplementary needs of our students, especially our lowest quartile, CIS improves the overall success of our schools. From basic math and grammer instruction, to teaching job interview skills, CIS does more than fill an academic void; they touch students' lives.

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

...the passion of the people and the flexibility in service.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

...always willing to help. They worked with the staff at the school and tried to meet the needs as best they could.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Full-time teacher in every school to address the lowest quartile; after school program in every school-lowest,gifted & others; after school tech teacher; job coach to get a job and help after employment; college and life coach;

Ways to make it better...

...there were a bigger budget and more personnel.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

...funds to provide the level of service they would like to provide.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I started typing my answer to the 10 million dollar question and the form cut me off. As a result, I was unable to explain my response. I went back and wrote a list. I could spend the money!
