The mission of Communities In Schools is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.

About CIS

Welcome to Communities In Schools of the Rocky Mount Region, Inc.


Communities In Schools is the only nonprofit proven to keep kids in school and help them graduate on time. . .

  • by having the student enrolled in the Communities In Schools Program,
  • by having volunteers once every week during the school year for an hour to help a child,
  • by having parental involvement and
  • by having a family support system.

Communities In Schools believes that all children need and deserve five basic life tools:

  1. A personal one-on-one relationship with a caring adult.
  2. A safe place to learn and grow.
  3. A marketable skill to use upon graduation.
  4. A chance to give back to peers and community.
  5. A healthy start and a potential for a healthy future.

Financial Literacy Retreat


Communities in Schools held their annual 7th Grade Financial Literacy Retreat at the Nash Community College Brown Auditorium sponsored by PNC Bank.  The event was held on Wednesday, November 19, 2014.   CIS students learned about personal finance and gained skills in basic financial decision making. Nash Community College students and community volunteers assisted the seventh graders with their “checking accounts” and real life scenarios. They also heard from experts in the areas of personal finance and entrepreneurship.

College Access Program

The College Access Program (CAP) identifies sixth graders who show potential for academic success. These students are served throughout their high school years.  Upon graduation the students meeting eligibility criteria will receive a scholarship for college or further studies.  The scholarship is named in memory of Gerald D. Daniel, a long-time support and past board member.  Upon graduation if a student attends college or trade school, he/she will be eligible for “LAST DOLLAR” financial assistance.

The involvement of community volunteers as tutors or mentors is a very important part of the Communities In Schools College Access Program.
