Empowering students to stay in school and achieve in life

At Communities In Schools, we work directly inside public schools, supporting vulnerable students and those with the greatest risk of dropping out. We empower more than 1,000 students to stay in school and on the path to graduation each year. Our trained student support specialists do this by partnering with teachers and administration at each school site, mobilizing the community to offer students extra support, and doing whatever it takes to help them succeed. Our unique model works because it’s based on national research, driven by community relationships and supported by local resources.

Last school year we provided free programming and support to more than 15,000 students, 1,746 of those received ongoing, case-managed support.
