Communities in Schools of the Charleston Area, Inc. Overview
Hundreds of thousands of American Children leave school each year. For most, academic failure is a symptom, not a cause. Bad grades and poor attendance are often the final, visible results of problems that have gone unaddressed for years - problems such as impaired physical and emotional health, unsafe streets, the lure of drug use and gang membership. Meanwhile, the surrounding community - including the school - wants urgently to help these young people. City and county agencies, local philanthropic foundations, public-spirited corporations, mentoring and tutoring programs, volunteer groups and concerned citizens are just a few of the resources available. The mission of CIS is to champion the connection of needed community resources with schools to help young people successfully learn, stay in school, and prepare for life. With the dropout rate in Charleston at 44%, making a connection between the resources and the at-risk youth and their families is critical.
