Communities in School

We are proud to be working with Communities in Schools of northwest Michigan.  The following information explains more about how they help our students.

"The barriers that keep kids from staying in school and graduating are numerous and widespread.  Some are easy to spot, like academic problems or homelessness.  But many others are less obvious – bullying, untreated medical or dental issues, or lack of school supplies and clothes.  Communities In Schools is dedicated to helping identify and remove any and all barriers for the students we serve so they can stay in school and succeed in life.

At Communities In Schools, we work in schools full-time to remove those barriers by building one-on-one relationships that empower student to stay in school and succeed in life.  Because we’re in schools all day every day, we see the unique needs of each student and partner with teachers and community to address them.  Whether it’s clean clothes, help with school work, or emotional support to help a child cope with and recover from a traumatic event, we connect students with the relationships and resources they need to succeed."
