PO Berry Grads 2015

The mission of Communities In Schools (CIS) is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life. As the nation’s leading dropout prevention organization, Communities In Schools is helping build a stronger local community where every child is capable of reaching his or her greatest potential.

An affiliate of the national Communities In Schools network, CIS of Charlotte-Mecklenburg serves 5,800+ students who have some of the greatest needs but the fewest resources in selected Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools. Through school-based Site Coordinators, CIS connects students and their families to the relationships and resources they need to be successful in school and beyond. Please join us in our mission to help all students graduate from high school and be prepared for college, careers, and life.
