Hundreds of students are currently engaged in After-school, Mentor and Readiness To Learn Programs at our five partner schools: Tyee Park, Oakwood, Southgate, Tillicum and Lochburn. [See the program in action here.]Each day Communities in Schools Lakewood Site Coordinators are connecting students and parents with community resources so that more students stay in school and achieve in life. We believe our work is helping to break cycles of poverty that have persisted in Lakewood for generations.
Our Fall Campaign goal is $20,000 and we have raised $15,500 so far. If you contributed at our Gala Dinner or through the mail, we thank you! To make a year-end contribution, you can give on-line at www.lakewood.ciswa.org or through the mail:

During this season of giving, we at CISL would like to thank all those who support our work as a volunteer, partner or donor. Together we are turning the tables on the dropout crisis!
