AmeriCorps – Why Serve?

Why Serve?
AmeriCorps members who have served with Communities In Schools in the past have said:

“I don’t know how to tell you and everyone at CIS, thanks so much for allowing me to be a part of something so wonderful!”

“I want to be a social worker, so this year has been such a tremendous opportunity for growth and development.  I’ve developed better listening skills, used my Spanish, learned how to relate to kids and gain trust, about boundaries, coping skills, time management, etc.  I’m so grateful for this experience!  Thank you!”

“Being a CIS AmeriCorps mentor has been the most fulfilling and rewarding experience of my life!”

“My biggest success was my kids realizing the capabilities they have within themselves and thanking me for their success.”
