Communities in Schools of Nassau County is doing a great job with the youth of Nassau County. One of my dearest friends' daughter participated in the program, both her grades and attendance improved she progressed to the next grade level and qualified for honors classes.

As a donor to Communitites in Schools of Nassau County I have seen an increase in student production and decrease in the students involved discipline referrals. Dealing mainly with athletes, this program is a great avenue for student athletes to keep their required grade point averages up to be eligible to participate as well as teach study skills that will help in their academic futures, teaching them learning skills that will follow them through life. Without this facet in our school systems, our community would suffer greatly from the fallout that would be generated. A great program and asset to Nassau County!

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 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
