Stanford Social Innovation Review Features Communities In Schools
Read an article on Communities In Schools’ integrated student services model in the summer 2013 issue of the Stanford Social Innovation Review (SSIR). “Keeping Kids in School,” appears in the ‘What Works’ column. The award-winning magazine, written for and by leaders in the nonprofit, business and government sectors, covers academic theory and practical ideas for achieving social change. Published at the Stanford Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society at Stanford University, SSIR views collaboration as key to solving environmental, social and economic justice issues.
The article details how Communities In Schools uses a mix of hard data (research and evaluation) and soft skills (caring site coordinators) to reduce dropout rates and improve graduation rates.
