COMMUNITIES IN SCHOOLS OF NASSAU COUNTY INC
June 20, 2012

I've been volunteering with Communities In Schools (CIS) of Nassau County since approximately 2008. Students are challenged by many aspects of life, including dynamics of academic standards, home, ecomonies, and, of course - the challenges of just being a kid! Communities In Schools lessens those challenges for these students, giving them the ambition and drive to overcome; to focus on what is important; to enjoy success, realizing they can achieve regardless of barriers that may be in their way. And you do not have to just take my word for it - emperical data shows student success, moreover, across the board. It's great to be on the side of the coin that assists in developing the future; it is much better, however, to see the kid proud, accomplished, and most of all, smiling!
