Communities In Schools has many opportunities available for interested volunteers. Take the first step in your volunteer journey by completing the CIS Volunteer Form!
Help build literacy and engagement with reading by picking up a children’s book. Read to the camera as if you’re reading to a child in the classroom. Sit and face the camera as you introduce the book, share the author, and read page by page. Check out the video playlist below to see examples and access virtual book readings that will help build literacy skills at home.
Inspire a student by sharing insight on where you work, what you do, what it’s like and how students can achieve the same success. Answer these questions: What do you do for a living? What made you choose this career? What advice do you have for students who want a career like yours? Check out this playlist where we’ll be compiling guest speakers to give students valuable insight into various career options.
This year’s graduating students have overcome so much in the past year, and will finally receive their diplomas this spring. Your heartfelt congratulations will help them see the bright future ahead of them! Create a unique graduation card at the link below, then send it back to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll make sure it falls in the hands of a graduate-to-be! Thank you for your support!
