Communities In Schools

Location: Columbus,
Ohio

COMMUNITIES IN SCHOOLS WORK DIRECTLY INSIDE SCHOOLS, BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS THAT EMPOWER STUDENTS TO SUCCEED INSIDE AND OUTSIDE THE CLASSROOM.

Students who drop out are more likely to earn thousands less in salaries, live in poverty, suffer poor health, enter the criminal system and be dependent on government and social services. The cost to our community and country is billions in lost revenue. Often, a student’s personal circumstances disrupt their chances at success even before they enter the school building.

We Understand
We understand that students face challenges both inside and outside the classroom.
We Work
We work to remove the barriers that prevent them from reaching their full potential and ultimate academic and personal success.
We Partner
We partner with schools and parents by placing a full-time dedicated site coordinator in a school, identifying kids at risk of dropping out and not graduating, or have needs like those above.
We partner with local businesses, social service agencies, health care providers and volunteers.
We Connect
We connect programs, services and resources to students in need, keeping them in school and on a path to life-long success.
Our unique, evidenced based model positions site coordinators inside schools to assess students’ needs and provide resources to help them succeed in the classroom and in life
