Who we are?


Communities In Schools – Galveston County Area is part of Communities In Schools, Inc. (CIS), the nation’s leading community-based organization helping young people stay in school and prepare for life. CIS employees do Whatever it Takes to keep kids in school so they can achieve in life.

Our Mission

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

Empowering Students To Achieve

Ensuring student success is every one’s job: schools, parents, communities. CIS of Galveston serves 14 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

Our Belief

Communities In Schools believes that transformative relationships are key to unlocking a student's potential. We will succeed by including in our strategies, ingraining in our culture, and reflecting in our behaviors, principles and practices of diversity, equity and inclusion. As a result, we break down immediate and systemic barriers to create and sustain equitable outcomes.

The Five Basic Principles of CIS are:

A one-on-one relationship with a caring adult
A safe place to learn and grow
A healthy start and a healthy future
A marketable skill to use upon graduation
A chance to give back to peers and community
