“I learned about Communities in Schools at the annual Spring into Action breakfast. While I had heard the name of the organization before, I wasn’t very familiar with their programs and services until attending that event. Listening to the stories of students and staff was incredibly moving, knowing that these were people in my own community making these life-changing impacts in students lives. As a first-gen college graduate, the most influential people in my career have been educators, so the organizations mission is something I whole-heartedly believe in. CiSBF provides students with not only opportunities and preparation, but the support and encouragement they need to accomplish their goals. Through their work in schools, CiSBF changes the trajectory of students lives for the better.” – Gina Vasquez
