Introducing the CIS of Mid-America Alumni Allies Network Program!
Communities In Schools of Mid-America’s Alumni Allies Network allows former CIS students to keep connecting with us but most importantly, each other. The Alumni Allies Network is a place – via social media and person to person, where alumni can engage and lend support to their peers after high school, whether their path involves finding employment, continuing their education or following other pursuits. Alumni can also network with mentors and receive support in skill development, enrichment programs, resume building activities and referrals to community resources or info on becoming a mentor themselves.
Communities in Schools of Mid-America has partnered with Hesston College to extend educational opportunities and success for CIS students into their college years. The partnership aims to "unlock potential for at-risk students" by providing a college environment that "educated and nurtures each student" through a caring and supportive campus community.
Individuals who are currently or have previously received case-management from CIS of Mid-America have a unique opportunity to attend Hesston College at practically no cost.
Students must meet academic requirements, have significant financial need, be willing to maintain steady campus employment, be willing to live in residence halls full-time, have positive interpersonal relationships, and be highly motivated to succeed.
