Communities in Schools of the South Plains depends upon hundreds of community volunteers who serve as tutors, mentors and role models for young people. The spirit of volunteerism is essential for any community-based program. Volunteers at Communities in Schools help forge the vital one-on-one relationships that connect with kids and make a lasting impact in their lives.
In the words of Communities in Schools’ founder Bill Milliken: “Programs don’t change kids – relationships do.”
Getting involved is simple and can be the most powerful catalyst to change!
