The award-winning magazine, Stanford Social Innovation Review (SSIR), has taken a closer look at the effectiveness of Communities In Schools, detailing how our national network mixes the hard data of our research and evaluation with the soft skills of our caring site coordinators to empower students to achieve.

Take a minute to hear how SSIR recognizes our hard work and dedication to students across the nation here:

As Communities In Schools National President Dan Cardinali explains, “We train our site coordinators the way you’d train a doctor as a diagnostician, to work on both prevention and intervention.” That attention to detail and careful orientation we provide our site coordinators has paid off here at Communities In Schools of Los Angeles – during this past school year we helped 2,300 students stay in school.
