The mission of Communities In Schools is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.

About Us

Empowering Students To Achieve ” 
 Ensuring student success is every one’s job: schools, parents, communities.  CIS of Galveston serves eight-8 schools  in Galveston County, we work closely with schools, social services, businesses and many volunteers to get young people the things they need to learn and grow: mentors and tutors, after-school help, family services to stabilize the home.   Without these basic supports, children in need  or  at-risk of dropping out of school are far less likely to succeed and grow into productive adults.
Getting children what they need – when they need it
Children are individuals with very individualized needs. Our school-site coordinators respond quickly, on a case-by-case basis to get children what they need — when they need it.
