CIS of Chesterfield works each day to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.  On-time graduation, academic achievement and a successful transition to work and/or higher education are our primary goals.

For more than 20 years, Communities In Schools (CIS) of Chesterfield has devoted its energy to passionately advocating for Chesterfield County students and families in need.  When it comes to making sure children get exactly what they need to succeed in school and in life.  We never give up! 

With comprehensive integrated student support services programs at six Chesterfield County schools - there are countless ways for individuals, faith communities, civic organizations and local businesses to get involved.

Communities In Schools of Chesterfield offers services in a manner that complies with all federal and state laws and regulations concerning discrimination, and operates by policy and practice without discrimination based on age, race, religion, gender or gender identity, sexual orientation, economic status, disability, cultural heritage or national origin.

Students to Success

#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.

Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday,

#GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.

One of the best ways to get involved is in your own community and by supporting the work of Communities In Schools of Chesterfield!

Go to cisofchesterfield.org or the CIS Facebook event page to donate.
And then tell everyone you did using your favorite form of social media!
