Our Impact

By establishing a presence in Dublin/Laurens County, we directly impact economic development. How? By increasing the number of students who not only graduate from high school but also leave with the tools to survive and equipped with a plan to accomplish the goals they have established for their lives.  These students go on to continue their education, find jobs, and become productive, tax paying citizens.  By working cooperatively within our schools to provide quality services to children and their families, we assist in creating school systems that are attractive to prospects who consider locating businesses in Laurens County.  By serving as a conduit through which services flow, we establish ourselves as an expert in our field.

Independent research has shown Communities In Schools is one of a small number of organizations proven to keep students in school and we are the ONLY organization to document that we increase graduation rates.
