• About Communities In Schools

    The mission of Communities In Schools of North Texas (CISNT) is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life. CISNT emphasizes five core tenets that are the foundation of all of our work. Our five core beliefs include the importance of a one-on-one relationship with a caring adult, a safe place to learn and grow, a healthy start and a healthy future, a markable skill upon graduation, and a chance to give back to peers and community.
