The mission of Communities In Schools (CIS) is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life. Through a school-based coordinator, CIS connects students and their families to critical community resources tailored to local needs. Working in nearly 2,400 schools in some of the most challenged communities nationwide, CIS has become the nation's leading dropout prevention organization, and the only one proven to increase graduation rates and decrease dropout rates.
