Creating Successful Community Partnerships

RampUp for Student Success is professional development powered by Communities In Schools. We give school and youth-serving organization teams the training and tools to address the non-academic barriers that can keep students from succeeding in the classroom. Each of the four course modules can be facilitated as virtual or in-person learning opportunities and are designed to be tailored to the unique needs of each community. Continuing education units (CEUs) are offered upon completion.
