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.


The Five Basics
  1. A one-on-one relationship with a caring adult
  2. A safe place to learn and grow
  3. A healthy start and a healthy future
  4. A marketable skill to use upon graduation
  5. A chance to give back to peers and community

Great Give, May 6, 2014
On May 6th 2014, from 12:00 am to 11:59 pm, our nonprofit is participating in the GREAT GIVE, a 24-hour online giving event designed to raise as much money as possible for local nonprofits in the allotted time as part of a nation-wide program called Give Local America.

This community-wide event will celebrate the spirit of giving and the collective effort it takes to strengthen our community while raising critical funds for local nonprofits. Every donation will be stretched further if you donate to our organization through www.GreatGivePBC.org. Just look for Communities In Schools in the Leaderboard tab at the top of the GreatGive website or go directly to the CIS Palm Beach County page.

Your donation will go a long way in helping us surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life. Plus, gifts made that day will receive a portion of bonus funds – making your dollar go even further than it would on any other day. We hope you will consider supporting us on May 6th!

The Economic Impact of Communities In Schools
An economic impact quantifying the costs and benefits of Communities In Schools model.

Communities In Schools contracted with EMSI to specify its economic and social returns to society through a rigorous third-party investment analysis. The purpose of this important next step is to quantify the return on investment of Communities In Schools' 113 high school-serving affiliates in its network to taxpayers, businesses, and students. The analysis also shows the economic benefits when local affiliates go from implementing parts of the Communities In Schools model in some of their high schools to full implementation in all of their high schools.
