NetworkPeninsula / Lend a Hand

Communities In Schools of Hampton Roads cordially invites you to learn how the environment influences our youth and how the community can impact them for good. With everyone chipping in and lending a hand we can change any negative environments to positive ones.

Communities In Schools (CIS) is the leading dropout prevention organization in the nation, and has continued its strong model and significant results by serving at-risk students in Hampton Roads since 2012. An independent five-year audit conducted by ICF International demonstrated that nationally, CIS was the most effective of all programs studied in both reducing the dropout rate and increasing the graduation rate. Our mission is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.
