The Founders Circle honors individuals who provided critical support and guidance of the work of Communities In Schools in our formative years and continue to stand with us today. For decades these leaders have been part of our backbone and thanks to their support, CIS grew from a small grassroots movement into the nation’s largest, most effective dropout prevention organization serving 1.5 million students annually.
