  • Mission:
  • To champion the connection of needed community resources with schools to help young people successfully learn, stay in school and prepare for life.

  • History:
  • Communities In Schools (CIS) was founded in 1977 to help youth in Harlem who were slipping through the cracks in the public school system and dropping out in high numbers. CIS initially opened “street academies” in city storefronts to reach them. Soon after, the U.S. Post Office funded a CIS alternative education academy in Atlanta which evolved into an innovative dropout prevention organization. Today, CIS is a nationwide network of 200 independent affiliates, serving nearly 2 million students and their families. CIS of Miami was founded in 1989 through a partnership with Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS), Burger King Corporation., and other corporations with strong community interests. In 2006-2007, CIS brokered more than 60 partnerships to provide direct services; recruited 261 volunteers that dedicated 25,859 service hours; and leveraged $738,818 in donated goods, services, and facilities.
