All Summer Long, We’ve Been All In For Kids

Aug. 7, 2020 Facebook Twitter Email Academic Assistance Community and Service Learning STEM Technology

Schools are the heart of every community. When they closed, it disrupted student learning and cut kids off from basic supports like meals, clothing, housing assistance, and medical care. It also separated students from the caring adults inside schools who supported their emotional well-being.

But while schools were out of session, Communities In Schools remained hard at work. 

Throughout the summer, our CIS affiliates have been connecting our students with resources, reengaging them in learning, and helping them recover from the emotional trauma over the last several months.

Now as schools begin to reopen – whether in person or virtual – we’ll still be there, by their side, helping them realize their full potential.
