our work is guided by our core values: equity . opportunity . collaboration
Here We Grow
Thanks to a recent grant obtained by our CIS National Office, the CIS South King County Alliance (made up of CIS of Federal Way, Kent and Renton) was awarded a 3-year expansion grant! What this means for CISR is that beginning next school-year, we will be expanding into all 3 Tukwila elementary schools and beginning in the 20/21 school-year, we will be expanding into Lindbergh High School!

Additionally, thanks to other funding received, we will be implementing a "mobile case-manager" who will support unaccompanied minors in the 3 high schools beginning next school-year.

Thank You
Last night we hosted our annual Achievement Circle Donors and Mentor Appreciation Event. Thank you  Jet City Harley Davidson (formerly Lawless Harley Davidson) for generously hosting the event.

Pay them a visit and welcome them to Renton – and maybe test drive a bike or just sit on one like CISR Board Chair, Tana Peterson did!
