Mission Statement

The mission of Communities In Schools is to champion the connection of needed resources with schools to help young people successfully learn, stay in school, and prepare for life.

Description

Communities In Schools is the nations largest drop out prevention program for youth. Communities In Schools has helped studentschoose success by ensuring their access to the "Five Basics":

  • A 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
  • A chance to give back to peers and community

CIS has championed the connection of needed community resources with schools. By bringing caring adults into the schools to address children's unmet needs, CIS provides the link between educators and the community. The result: Teachers are free to teach, and students -- many in jeopardy of dropping out -- finally have the opportunity to focus on learning.We celebrate student success: increased graduation and stay-in-school rates; increased attendance; better academic performance.
