Mrs Dinwiddie and her coaching staff is doing a great job of helping our students to become better citizens for the community. I applaud their efforts to keep our children interested in learning.

I love being a volunteer at the Callahan Schools. I may be a volunteer but I learn more from the students. Being a volunteer is a great thing to do, you not only help students but the teachers too. I believe we have the Best schools here in Nassau County in Florida.

I have helped out at events and student/family meals and see how much CIS does for our kids and their families. Some don't have the help they need and CIS is there to provide or find the extra services that help them to do better in school and also in their life.

Communities in Schools of Nassau County is an amazing non-profit! They care so passionately and strongly for their students and help them to achieve in every way. I love how they are constantly looking for new ways to help their students and also how to get the community involved. The relationships built with the students are lasting and previous students always come back to share how they are doing and their successes. AMAZING PROGRAM!

Communities In Schools Nassau is a unique program supporting students and their families to navigate academics and other barriers found in life. Students are the hardest hit in tough times. In my mind, this an unfair dynamic to them. Students need to be students. Like us adults, they need time to learn, grow, rest, defuse and just have fun. They also need support in making good decisions and good choices in how best to handle life's impact. Communities In Schools Nassau offers this support. Programs go above and beyond in academic support, career coaching and development, college preparedness, emotional support, health and fitness, teaching Life Skills, and giving a host of basic needs support. A student excels when achievement occurs. Communities In Schools gives the opportunity and tools necessary in that achievement.

As an AmeriCorps VISTA volunteer serving at Communities In Schools of Nassau County, I've been able to get a unique perspective on what CIS does, and what a positive impact it has on the youth of our community. I've seen the positive change in students, both academically and emotionally. The CIS program gives students the support and positive influence they need to acheive their goals.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Increase community awareness of CIS Nassau.
