Communities In Schools is a respected national voice for students. Over the years, our position has been clear: Every child needs and deserves the resources that make the difference between a graduate and a dropout. It is everyone’s job to ensure every student’s success—which means schools, families, businesses, and the community as a whole must work together.

Our Board of Directors is an integral part of why Communities In Schools of the Lehigh Valley has been so successful. This group of community leaders not only endorses the mission and vision of CIS, but also uses their experience and influence to open doors, garner support and offer guidance to create an even better organization for future generations.
