With your donation, Communities In Schools of SWVA can continue to make a difference in the lives of at-risk children every day! By investing in our students, you will be giving them the chance to graduate from school and go on to be successful and productive members of our community. With promising programs such as mentoring, career/technical education and exposure, and family engagement opportunities, we are setting up our students to be successful right here in our own communities. Please consider making your one-time, or monthly, donation today and be ALL IN FOR KIDS! 


Be a mentor!

  • You could be the one-on-one relationship that every child needs and deserves! Students with mentors are 46% less likely to use drugs, 52% less likely to skip school and 55% more likely to go to college!

Volunteer for a career day!

  • Represent your business or organization at our next career fair! Exposure to different career and life paths can help out student envision a different life for themselves!

“Adopt” a child for Christmas in July!

  • Every summer, Communities In Schools of SWVA helps students in Bristol, VA, and Tazewell County, have a little brighter start to the school year. With the help and support of our communities, we are able to provide over 300 students with new clothes to start the school year! By “adopting” one of your students, you are the support that student needs to start the school year on a positive note!
