We are part of the nation's leading dropout prevention organization, working in public schools to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.
In Spokane County last year, our Site Coordinators helped 6,342 students overcome barriers to school success, stay on track to graduate, and aim for a brighter future.
We place Communities In Schools Site Coordinators directly in schools to connect students with volunteers and services that reduce obstacles to learning. By channeling community support directly to kids at school we promote student success, ease the burden on schools, and free teachers to teach.
We support schools in Spokane and Cheney with Site Coordinators. In addition, 20 more schools use our PrimeTime Mentoring program to match youth at risk of school failure with a caring adult who mentors right at school. Other integrated student services include meeting basic needs with food, school and hygiene supplies, academic support, college and career exploration, parent education, and summer learning options.
