About Us

The Nashville affiliate of Communities In Schools of Tennessee (CISTN) launched its efforts in school year 2012-2013 and today serves over 2,000 students in six Metro Nashville Public Schools (MNPS). In Nashville, more than 72% of children are living in poverty, shouldering more than they should have to. It sounds like an overwhelming issue, but the solution is simple: young people thrive when they have a one-on-one relationship with a caring adult. That is why CISTN does whatever it takes to remove the nonacademic barriers students face – such as homelessness, hunger, or lack of transportation – by inserting a caring adult inside each of our partner schools to work with at-risk students’ on a daily basis building trusting relationships they can count on and strategically delivering the resources they need to succeed in school and in life.
