Our site coordinators are the everyday heroes of Communities In Schools. These caring adults help empower at-risk youth to fulfill their potential and reach graduation day. For Karl, that caring adult was his site coordinator Lourdes Jimenez, who helped him receive mental, emotional and physical support. With the help of his site coordinator, Karl received necessary medical treatments while still staying on track in school- graduating high school second in his class with honors.
Many of us had an inspiring mentor, coach, teacher or loved who was our hero growing up, too, and we’d love to hear your story!
