Stay Tuned ~ Dine out for Kids August 2017

Dine Out For Kids provides an opportunity for restaurateurs and sponsors to support at-risk students in their community by donating a portion of the profits from breakfast, lunch and/or dinner to CIS. August 2017 dates TBA!  Proceeds from the event will allow CIS of Savannah to continue to provide after-school, youth leadership, literacy, parent education and other pertinent programs in Savannah/Chatham County. Please join us as we DINE OUT FOR KIDS.

Communities in Schools Back to School Breakfast: September 5, 2017, 8:00AM

The kids that CIS serves struggle in school to poverty, behavior, attendance and/or academic problems, and are often not recognized for their positive accomplishments. Student Achievement Month boosts student’s confidence and helps them to set new goals and gain a better understanding of the importance of academic achievement and succeeding in school.

Students will be required to submit a personal expression of CIS Means to them.
Each affiliate will be allowed a local winner in each age division (2nd-5th grade), (6-th-8th grade) and 9th-12th grade) as applicable – but will nominate one winner for the state Champions award. That winner will be invited to the Champions banquet on Feb 19, 2018

To prepare our students for this challenge, CIS of Savannah is looking for mentors and volunteers who would enjoy tutoring and mentoring in art, creative writing, and public speaking. If you are interested or would like to find out more, please email our Executive Director, Catalina Garcia-Quick @

Cocktails, Couture, & Cuisine is a CIS of Savannah signature fundraising event where members of the local business community are recruited as “Role Models”  to fundraise over a 12-week period. During this time they are paired with a board member and they are tasked with achieving a goal of $5000. At the end of 12 weeks, the participants ‘strut their stuff’ and celebrate their success on the runway, modeling fashion for local stores and boutiques, as guests enjoy dinner and cocktails at the Savannah Golf Club.
