  • Mission:
  • Communities In Schools surrounds students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.

  • History:
  • Communities In Schools (CIS) was established in 1972 for the purposes of keeping kids in school and helping them earn their high school diplomas. What began in the basement of a modest home in Atlanta's Grant Park community is now one of the largest dropout prevention organizations, and one of the largest youth-serving nonprofits in the country.

    CIS of Atlanta has served students in Atlanta since 1972, and in DeKalb County since 1999. These parterships have enabled CIS of Atlanta to work within local schools to address the critical needs of students and families. Through programs that improve student attendance and behavior, increase parental involvement and recruit community resources to meet the needs of students and families, CIS of Atlanta's staff members make an impact daily. CIS believes that when students' needs are met, they can be free to learn and teachers can be free to teach.

    During the 2011-2012 school year, CIS of Atlanta has full-time staff working within seventy Atlanta and DeKalb County schools with enrollments of more than 45,000 students. CIS affiliates around the country are serving nearly two million million young people and families this year.
