At the heart of improving educational opportunities
Communities In Schools is a national organization whose strength is bolstered by its network of independent non-profit affiliates who all share the same values that center on how we empower students in the classroom and in life. Together, at the national, state or local affiliate level, we all adhere to the same high standards of a research-based model that pursues the five basic beliefs identified by our co-founder, Bill Milliken.
21 affiliates work across the state with partners within their local communities promoting and learning from each other to ensure students are surrounded with all the support necessary to achieve excellence in school and success in life. Championed by national and state CIS organizations, each affiliate is afforded access to a robust portfolio of resources and support because every kid matters to us. We are committed to the success of each one.
