What Clients Are Saying

“I’ve had the honor of working closely with CSC for over 20 years and continue to be impressed with their balance of professionalism and support. I’ve presented at their well-organized and energizing conferences. As a longtime grantee through the ELECT program, I’ve received prompt, cutting-edge information and trainings that were individualized for my needs. The CSC staff are approachable advocates committed to the well-being of all the individuals and agencies they serve.”

“We value and trust the staff at the Center to provide the training and technical assistance we need to implement our 21st Century Community Learning Center and Migrant Education Programs. We know we can count on them to help us design and offer afterschool and summer programming that our students enjoy and look forward to attending.”

“Partnering with the Center on statewide initiatives has been extremely rewarding and mutually beneficial to our programs and to the education communities we serve. CSC staff guided a diverse array of projects including the development of a graduate level webinar series and website on green and healthy schools, support of watershed training initiatives, coordinated statewide service learning initiatives, supported Chesapeake Bay education leadership, organized conferences and professional development opportunities, provided fundraising support and offered quality workshop registration and marketing management.”

“A colleague recommended that I reach out to the Center for our annual faculty conference. With a list of my needs in hand, the staff at the Center found seven fantastic presenters and sessions that fulfilled my needs far above and beyond what I had hoped. We will definitely be working with them for years to come!”

“The Center for Schools and Communities has been a KEY partner in our conference planning and I can’t thank them enough for their guidance and help!”

“Thank you for the opportunity to present at the conference. It was one of the best conferences I have ever participated in - very friendly environment, nice pace and variety of events, and wonderfully engaged attendees. I look forward to a continued partnership with your organization!”
