There are many ways you can come alongside students to help them secure the future they want for themselves. Gifts of time, money, and resources are all valued avenues for contributing to student success.


Thank you for your interest in volunteering in the Richmond area schools. Communities In Schools of Richmond partners with Richmond Public Schools and Henrico County Public Schools to support area students with resources, programs and services that aim to help students be more successful in life.


Now more than ever, we must reimagine public education and find new ways to create equitable conditions for learning for ALL students, with students at the center, surrounded by a caring community with access to all necessary resources.
