Communities In Schools and School Safety

May 22, 2018
Every young person needs and deserves a safe place to learn and grow. Our school-based coordinators bring the right community resources into schools to ensure that school environments that are safe and inclusive of all students. Working with teachers and school leaders, Communities In Schools site coordinators implement key initiatives that improve school climate, resolve conflicts and prevent violence, and help students cope with trauma. Key strategies include:
  • Incorporating safe school strategies into school culture
  • Fostering social-emotional skills and competencies
  • Effective brokering of mental health services to reach the students who need them the most
  • Playing a key role in a recovery from a major disaster or traumatic community event promoting awareness and understanding
