Right now, in the U.S. there are 14.5 million children living in poverty. The collateral effects of being in the margins of society follow these young people as they go to school each day. That’s why Communities In Schools works inside k-12 schools to help underserved students reach their potential by offering access to resources.
Our work spans 25 states and the District of Columbia. Though we’ve been able to help more than 1.5 million kids stay in school to focus on their education, there is still much work to be done. By chipping in $5 today you are advancing the Communities In Schools mission of ensuring all kids have the opportunity to succeed in life. By signing up below, you can also join our community of youth advocates to lend your voice when the moment calls.
