Lead Teacher (Former Employee) – Winston-Salem, NC – August 16, 2017
Helping the children with homework and feeding the children snack on a daily basis. The hardest part of the job was getting the parent to understand that we was running a after school program not a babysitting company.
I learned a lot of different things working with the children and in the school
Site Coordinator/Student Success Coach (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – August 14, 2017
As with most non-profits, the job is stressful, chaotic and pays next to nothing. However, there is no place I would rather be. The lack of pay is made up by great benefits and complete autonomy on the job site..So it works
Bi-lingual site Coordinator, Immigrant Service. (Current Employee) – Charlotte, NC – August 5, 2017
My typical day at work is very rewarding when it comes to working with the kids within the school advocating for the kids with administration, teachers and family. Empowering the kids to advocate for themselves is one of my functions of my job.
I like that my working hours and holidays are payed.

My experience at Communities in Schools was great on site. I had a great time with my case load of students and coworkers. The management was not the best but definitely not the worst. Emails were a bit unprofessional, and it felt like we got overworked.

Site Coordinator (Former Employee) – Brownsville, TX – June 30, 2017
Good Place to work. The work was direct with children who were at risk of dropping out of school. The program provided support services to the students to help them stay in school. The program was successful and about 95% or more completed school year/
Site Coordinator (Former Employee) – Longview, TX – June 29, 2017
Better understanding on the whole caseload being more than I could handle at times in a since, but also creating a fun and exciting workplace being a camp counselor. Management was stern and honest at all times which I was greatly appreciative for. Most enjoyable part of my day was interacting with kids and making them smile all at once.
My experience was atypical from what I've found online
Americorps Direct Service Site Coordinator (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – June 27, 2017
When i worked there i was an Americorps member, not a full employee of Communities in Schools. Unfortunately i was under a first year grant that went under due to mismanagement. I'm sure Communities in Schools would be fine to work for

The CIS mission to help students stay in school is exceptional. The company provides an excellent benefits package as well. It was a great company to work for and my day to day was never boring. I was very lucky to have had the opportunity to work for such a wonderful organization and team!
