Communities In Schools of Jacksonville is a leading dropout prevention organization helping kids successfully learn, stay in school and prepare for life. We reach more than 6,900 at-risk students in 37 Duval County Public Schools through mentoring, literacy tutoring, after-school enrichment, and case management.
The mission of Communities In Schools is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.
Provide a personal one-on-one relationship with a caring adult; a safe place to learn and grow; a healthy start and a healthy future; a marketable skill to use upon graduation and a chance to give back.
There are many more young people in our schools who are close to giving up. They are searching for a future. Together, we can make a difference in their lives. When will we see the last dropout?
