Who We Are
CIS is a private, nonprofit organization that connects resources from public and private sectors with at-risk students. We utilize the power of partnerships to serve students, schools and communities.

Too many young people are failing in our public schools today - and Florida has one of the highest dropout rates and lowest literacy rates in the nation. Schools alone cannot solve the complex and diverse problems faced by today's youth.

Our Mission
The mission of Communities In Schools is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.
