Communities in Schools

These are disproportionately children of color who already struggle with issues of access and equity. Without community support, they are more at risk for missing school, dropping out and failing to earn a high school diploma. By helping our most vulnerable students stay in school and succeed in life, we are building stronger, healthier and more economically stable communities where every person is capable of reaching his or her greatest potential.

Communities In Schools surrounds students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life. Our evidence-based approach, adapted to meet each community’s unique needs, is the basis for our success.

Volunteer opportunities can be scheduled by going to Sign-up Genius for Reality U, or contacting Natalie Rutledge, Executive Director, 678-503-0901 / nrutledge@cisgeorgia.org for other opportunities at specific schools. Those opportunities can include mentoring, tutoring, and helping the Communities In Schools site coordinators at their specific schools. You are also welcome to contact Carol Fey at 678-656-3658 / cfey@bellsouth.net for more info.

  • New underwear and socks -especially middle school and high school sizes

  • New or gently used books for elementary through high school ages
