Schools Can't Do It Alone...

Nearly 30% of Washington students drop out of school. Schools and teachers alone do not have the resources that Washington needs to ensure kids graduate from high school prepared for life.

Communities In Schools of Washington addresses the dropout crisis one child at a time.Our communities are full of people who want to help.

We organize thousands of volunteers to work as mentors and tutors, providing adult guidance, life skills modeling, and high expectations for success.

It takes family and community. By channeling community support directly to kids in schools we promote student success, ease the burden on schools, and free teachers to teach.
