As one of 194 affiliates in the nation's largest dropout-prevention network, Communities In Schools of Durham (CIS) works to reduce the dropout rate by using evidence-based programs and connecting students with resources to help them achieve success, such as local corporations, civic agencies, and human-services agencies.

CIS places full-time staff members in schools, where they implement programs and form individual relationships with students who have a greater risk for dropping out. As part of its programming, CIS sponsors tours to local colleges so students can learn more about potential opportunities, gain inspiration for earning a high-school diploma, and begin to identify their ideal career path.
