Our data provides cumulative evidence of the powerful relationship-driven impact happening every day across Virginia.

Our network is comprised of six independent affiliates each addressing the needs specific to its schools and communities.

We are driving policy and funding to bring innovative models of support to schools across Virginia.

Multiple third-party reviews have verified CIS’s model as effective and cost-efficient, returning $11.60 to the community for every dollar invested.

Advancing Equity,
Igniting Potential

Students who drop out of school are more likely to earn thousands less in salries, live in poverty, suffer poor health, enter the criminal justice system and be dependent on government and social services. The cost to our community and country is billions in lost revenue.

CIS helps make sure that every student has what they need to realize their full potential in school and beyond. We walk by their side, in their communities, to navigate barriers that stand between them and their success in life.


Student Success Lasts a Lifetime

Our evidence-based model connects students to caring adults and community resources to transform how they see and experience the world around them. By surrounding them with a network of trust they can turn to no matter where they are in their journey, we empower students to confront and overcome personal challenges and structural barriers—so they can take charge of the future they want for themselves, their communities and each other.
