“Young people thrive when adults care about them on a one-to-one level and they have a sense of belonging to a caring community.”

Bill Milliken, Founder, Communities In Schools

Role models and supportive adults are needed at each school. Volunteers can read with students, provide tutoring after-school, or assist with family night activities.

Volunteers are always needed for Project 321 READ where community members are paired with first, second, and third grade students and spend time reading together one day a week.

Share your particular talent or skill with students in Clark County.  Contact the CIS of Clark County office if you are interested in providing a school-wide or grade level presentation.

Community volunteers lead CIS of Clark County through service on the Board of Directors, Committees, and planning of Special Events. Contact Julie Moorman at the CIS of Clark County office for more information.
