Empowering youth to stay in school!

Help Communities In Schools of Central Texas (CIS) empower students to stay in school and achieve in life!

CIS is looking for volunteers to mentor elementary school students in North Austin campuses.

Mentors serve as a caring and consistent role model for students and help them engage in their educational future. For a full academic school year, you would meet with a student once a week on the school campus.

The program is focused on relationship building and the student’s preferences and interests guide what each session entails. Activities may include spending time getting to know each other, playing games, making arts and crafts, working through challenges, and much more. To get started, visit our website at:https://ciscentraltexas.org/volunteer/.

Bilingual (Spanish & English) speaking volunteers are highly needed , but this is not a requirement.

Requirements:

  1. Fill out a volunteer application
  2. Complete an orientation module
  3. Schedule and pass a 30-minute volunteer screening
  4. Attend a 1-hour training session
  5. Undergo and pass a criminal background check
