It only takes one person to make a difference in the life of a child. With help from our 70,000 volunteers, we've been able to serve more than 1.25 million young people each year.
"Communities In Schools has inspired me by displaying how our youth can be given opportunities to succeed when people around them are willing to help."
-Terrence Thomas, Communities In Schools volunteer and community partner
