What is Friends of CIS

The Friends of Communities In Schools is a group of diverse and influential community members with a common passion for supporting and empowering students to graduate and achieve in life. They collaborate with CIS staff to provide students with enrichment activities, mentors and resources to help them succeed. Friends also support CIS-SA by:

  • Serving as ambassadors for CIS-SA by spreading the word about our cause
  • Attending CIS-SA events & inviting others to learn more
  • Participating in volunteer opportunities to make a direct & indirect impact on students
  • Connecting CIS-SA with other organizations and companies that are mission aligned to create potential partnership

“Thanks to the Friends of CIS-SA for establishing partners with the San Antonio Botanical Gardens, McNay Museum and San Antonio Museum of Art.”
