Welcome to
                 Communities In Schools of Juneau


Every year, 1.2 million students drop out of school. What that means is every 26 seconds, a student in America loses his or her path to a better future. By helping students stay in school and succeed in life, we are building a stronger America, where every person is capable of reaching his or her greatest potential.  
At Communities In Schools, we work hand in hand with schools, communities and families to surround our students with a caring network of support to help them stay in school and succeed in life. We have nearly 42,000 volunteers on the ground, working in more than 2,200 K-12 public schools in the most challenged communities in 26 states and the District of Columbia,serving 1.3 million young people and their families every year. 


Communities In Schools places highly site coordinators and supporting staff directly into schools. Once there, our job is to connect students and their families to basic and critical community resources, tailored to each student's specific needs. By providing students with a one-on-one relationship with a caring adult, we create a safe place to learn and grow, a healthy start to a healthy future, a path toward marketable skills upon graduation and a chance to give back to peers and the community. As a result, Communities In Schools has become the nation’s largest and most effective dropout prevention organization and the only one proven to both decrease dropout rates and increase graduation rates.
