Communities in Schools

Communities in Schools is a national education nonprofit, and they have an impressive collection of “success stories.” Most are written profiles, but several have been turned into videos and are prominently featured on the organization’s web site. There are stories of both students and site coordinators, and the collection has quite a few stories, which have tags and categories assigned to them, so that visitors can search the site by stories about particular categories of people, locations, and/or certain services provided by Communities in Schools. The stories are also interesting examples of the integration of personal stories with more quantitative data, as each has a location-specific data point attached to it.
