The CIM survey has been administered in the same Lake Worth neighborhood three times, first in 2011, in 2013, and most recently in 2016. Lake Worth has had the benefit of many grants and community programs. The CIM allows us to know if the impact of our efforts is visible and experienced by residents who live in the community.

Home base will be ‘greenway’ across from Highland Elementary School on “A” Street in Lake Worth. We will ask that you park on “A” street and not in the bus loop. Arrive 15 minutes before your volunteer block to receive a training refresher, your t-shirt, and to be paired up with your “Survey Buddy”.

Please have the students/parents fill out the attached forms. Parents must sign the forms for all students under 18. Please bring the completed signed forms to the Lake Worth Beach Public Library located at 15 North M St, Lake Worth Beach.
