Communities in Schools of Miami is an affiliate of the nation's largest and most effective dropout prevention organization, surrounding students with a community of support to empower them to stay in school and achieve in life. We mobilize communities to address both academic and non-academic barriers to learning to help our students. Our unique, proven model positions site coordinators inside schools to mobilize community resources and deliver them directly to kids inside their schools.
In the U.S.,1 in 5 children under the age of 18 live in poverty, shouldering more than they should have to. Communities In Schools of Miami works directly inside schools, building relationships that empower students to succeed inside and outside the classroom.
