Communities In Schools-Baytown helps students to stay in school by providing case managers on middle school and high school campuses. They also provide after-school and summer school programs to help limit gang activity in the community by providing tutoring, supportive guidance, career and college planning activities for high school students.

Make the community more aware of what this organization is doing - give them more people and resources. Some of their employees give extra time and money out of their pockets to do their jobs. For example, the employees that accompanied us on the field trip made breakfast for the students that may not have eaten before the trip and brought snacks for them from their homes.
