The mission of Communities In Schools of Chicago is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life. Our vision is to ensure that every public school student in Chicago graduates from high school prepared to succeed. Our model is backed by data and rigorous research. This year we are partnering with 175 Chicago public schools, helping more than 50,000 students succeed and stay in school. We do our work by connecting schools with needed programs and services and providing one-on-one and group counseling to specific students. Our team of 30 professionals relies on a set of organizational core values that guide our approach to working and serving students, schools and the community-at-large. We began working in Chicago in 1988, and have a rich history of serving Chicago's students.
