About Us

Communities In Schools is the nation's leading dropout prevention organization dedicated to surrounding students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life. We serve 1.25 million students in 2,400 schools and community-based sites. By bringing resources, services, parents and volunteers into schools, we create a community of caring adults who work hand-in-hand with educators to make sure young people have the tools they need to succeed.

Communities In Schools has been recognized for its sound business practices and financial transparency, earning the Better Business Bureau's Wise Giving Alliance National Charity Seal and four consecutive four-star rating from Charity Navigator – two highly coveted endorsements (only 6 percent of the organizations reviewed by Charity Navigator have received at least four consecutive four-star evaluations). We also have been named by Philanthropedia, a nonprofit aimed at helping donors give more strategically, as a high-impact organization working with at-risk youth. Communities In Schools has attracted attention and support from many prestigious foundations, corporations and individual philanthropists.
