Communities In Schools (CIS), the national organization that works inside schools empowering at-risk students to achieve in school and succeed in life will ring the Opening Bell at the NYSE Monday, April 17 at 9:30ET to celebrate the organization’s 40th anniversary.
CIS President & CEO Dale Erquiaga will be joined on the NYSE podium by CIS leaders from Georgia and Pennsylvania as well as students and the site coordinators who work with inside schools to help them overcome the barriers to learning.
“One of the founding principles of Communities In Schools is to help students complete school with the tools and resources they need to be successful after graduation, said Erquiaga. As we celebrate our 40th anniversary, we are reminded that there is more work to be done to break the cycle of poverty and empower more students to create better lives, better communities and a better world.”
