Communities In Communities In Schools is teh leading dropout prevention program for the greater Sacramento area.
Children cannot learn at their potential when they are in crisis or face significant non-academic needs. Most students who drop out of school are dealing with multiple problems that present barriers to their education: poverty, unattended health needs, hunger, an unemployed parent, domestic violence, teen pregnancy or substance use.
Through campus-based programs and special projects, Communities In Schools creates a network of volunteers, social services, businesses, and community resources that work together to break down barriers and help students succeed. What we do works: last year, 99% of the students referred to Communities In Schools stayed in school.
