Using the Power of Community to Change Kids’ Lives

When students are faced with insurmountable barriers – lack of access to adequate healthcare, the death of a parent, trouble at home– that might keep them from actualizing their dreams, Communities In Schools is there. But we cannot do this work alone. We need you.

Right now, in the U.S. there are 14.5 million children living in poverty. The collateral effects of being in the margins of society follow these young people as they go to school each day.  That’s why Communities In Schools works inside schools every day to help underserved students reach their potential by offering access to resources.

Our work spans 25 states and the District of Columbia. We’ve helped more than 1.5 million kids stay in school to focus on their education, and there’s so much more work to be done.
