Description

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

Communities In Schools of Seattle partners with Seattle Public Schools and primarily serves schools in economically disadvantaged areas with a disproportionately high number of ethnic minorities. Over the years CIS Seattle has helped hundreds of youth overcome the social, emotional and physical barriers to learning by providing academic support and intervention with students for truancy, inter-student harassment, emotional and family issues, housing and health concerns.

The fundamental beliefs of every Communities In Schools program are that every child needs and deserves:

  • A personal one-on-one relationship with a caring adult
  • A safe place to learn and grow
  • A healthy start in life
  • A marketable skill to use upon graduation
  • A chance to give back to their peers and community

CIS of Seattle programs include:

Stuff The Bus: In a district of over 46,000 students, more than 40% come from impoverished backgrounds. CIS Seattle coordinates a community-wide school supply drive to fill this need.

Family Support and One-on-One Intervention: It is far too often the case that students who struggle in school also face struggles at home. Unfortunately schools are not equipped to provide family interventions. CIS of Seattle is able to fill this gap.

Skill-Building Activities: Kids need tangible skills to be successful. Ensuring that students gain marketable skills is one of the CIS Five Basics.
