Communities in Schools

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

By bringing caring adults into the schools to address children's unmet needs, CIS provides the link between educators and the community. 

We believe every child needs and deserves the "Five Basics". Here's how Communities In Schools brings the "Five Basics" into the school ...

  1. A one-on-one relationship with a caring adult 
    Mentors, Tutors and Parental Involvement Programs.

  2. A safe place to learn and grow 
    After-School and Extended-Hours Programs.

  3. A healthy start and a healthy future 
    Mental Health Counseling, Family Strengthening Initiatives, Drug and Alcohol Education, Physical and Dental Exams, Eye Care and Immunizations, Help for Teen Parents.

  4. A marketable skill to use upon graduation 
    Technology Training for the Future, Career Counseling and Employment Skills, College Preparation and Scholarship Opportunities.

  5. A chance to give back to peers and community 
    Community Service Opportunities, Junior ROTC Programs
