      Pros

      Mission-driven organization, direct work with students

      Cons

      Higher-level management changed this organization. Staff are leaving in droves because of executive leaders have made too many changes and don't care about staff working directly with students.

      Good Opportunity to help the youth in your own way

      Aug 18, 2021 - Site Coordinator in Columbus, OH

      CEO Approval

      Pros

      Communities In Schools is a good nonprofit because of their mission. They. advocate for at risk youth and their families insuring both long and short term successes in school. CIS allows staff to build rapport, work with students and families and connect with community resources in our own way. There is no true blue print. Each neighborhood, school, and community have their own needs so being flexible is important. You'll have to work based off the needs of the population. Compensation is okay, insurance is good, staff support is pretty good.

      Cons

      The organization is a little disorganized. At times it was rough serving a principal and the organization. The school staff thinks that CIS is apart of staff and it can be hard to draw certain lines.
