The founding principle of Communities In Schools is to establish one-on-one relationships with individual students in order to support them beyond obstacles to success in school.

Communities In Schools Program Managers connect personally with students to create a service plan based on each child’s needs and then make that plan happen. They may provide individual counseling or support groups, basic life skills, tutoring, mentoring, or enrichment opportunities. The goal of all these services is to engage students in learning and succeeding in school.
