Communities In Schools: Campus-Based Intern
About Communities In Schools (CIS): Children cannot learn at their potential when they are in crisis or face significant non-academic needs. Most students who drop out of school are dealing with multiple problems that present barriers to their education: poverty, unattended health needs, hunger, an unemployed parent, domestic violence.
Our mission: Communities In Schools of Central Texas surrounds students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.
Communities In Schools is a dropout prevention program. Through campus-based programs and special projects, Communities In Schools creates a network of volunteers, social services, businesses, and community resources that work together to break down barriers and help students succeed.
Communities In Schools of Central Texas serves thousands of children and families every year, providing options where there once were none.
With your support, Communities In Schools can help kids stay in school and become productive members of the Central Texas workforce and community.
