What We Do

Communities In Schools (CIS) is the nation's largest organization dedicated to empowering students to stay in school and on a path to a brighter future. Working directly inside more than 2,300 schools across the country, we connect kids to caring adults and community resources designed to help them succeed. Here in Charlotte-Mecklenburg, CIS operates in 55 CMS school sites, connecting 6,000+ students annually to these critical resources and supportive relationships.

CIS-Charlotte places full-time professionals -- our Site Coordinators -- in selected Charlotte-Mecklenburg (CMS) schools to connect students to caring adults and community resources that will empower them to be successful inside and outside the classroom. By partnering with individual volunteers, businesses, faith and community groups, CIS is able to provide a broad range of services and opportunities tailored to individual student needs. We do whatever it takes to ensure that all kids-- regardless of the challenges they may face--have what they need to realize their potential.
