Collaborator Spotlight: Communities In Schools
Communities In Schools (CIS), one of the nation’s leading dropout prevention organizations, deploys approximately 3,200 school-based site coordinators as the points of contact for providing integrated student support for at-risk youth. They are supported by more than 70,000 volunteers and 15,700 community partners in nearly 200 affiliates across the network.
Through a recent $5 million contribution from AT&T, CIS will expand and strengthen its network that is helping 1.25 million of the nation’s most challenged students achieve in school, graduate and go on to college and career success. In addition, AT&T employees will support these efforts as volunteer mentors across the country.
AT&T’s $5 million contribution to CIS was one of the largest ever through AT&T Aspire. Since 2008, AT&T and the AT&T Foundation have provided $14.2 million in funding to Communities In Schools and its local affiliates. With the latest contribution, AT&T is the largest corporate funder of CIS.
