Communities In Schools is a national organization that champions the connection of needed community resources with schools to help young people successfully learn, stay in school, and prepare for life. By bringing caring adults into the schools to address children's unmet needs, CIS provides the link between educators and the community. Communities in Schools works to ensure that every child has access to the "five basics":
  • A 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 to peers and community

The local Glynn County affiliate of CIS was established in 2006 and is a collaborative of members from private and public sector agencies.
