Mission Statement

To surround students with a community of support empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.

Description

Through a school-based coordinator, Communities In Schools-Bay Area (CIS-Bay Area) connects students and their families to critical community resources tailored to local needs.

The goal of CIS-Bay Area is to improve the in-school performance of every case management student by providing the following Five CIS basics:

  • A personal one-on-one relationship with a caring adult;
  • A safe place to learn and grow;
  • A healthy start and a healthy future;
  • A marketable skill to use upon graduation; and
  • A chance to give back to peers and community.

By providing students with a one-on-one relationship with a caring adult, a safe place to learn and grow, a healthy start and future, a marketable skill to use upon graduation, and a chance to give back to peers and the community, Communities In Schools has become the nation's leading dropout prevention organization and the only one proven to both decrease dropout rates and increase graduation rates.
