For many young people, social distancing means missing milestones and public recognition of their academic achievements. As students begin to wrap-up their final months of remote classes, Communities In Schools ® (CIS) affiliates across the country are finding creative ways to recognize and celebrate the accomplishments of our students.
From delivering graduation gifts, to social media shout outs using #WhatWeAreMadeOf, our volunteers and site coordinators are going above and beyond to send well wishes and words of inspiration to students embarking on the next chapter of their journey.
Now more than ever, we’re being called to empower students to take charge of their lives and their futures. Keep striving for excellence scholars!
