About CIS of Atlanta

Since 1972, Communities In Schools (CIS) of Atlanta’s evidence‐based model has reached struggling students with preventative measures and interventions to get them on track for success in school by overcoming barriers to success, including poor attendance and behavior, low levels of parental involvement, limited exposure to academic enrichment opportunities, and a lack of access to basic necessities including shelter, clothing, and school supplies, among others. CIS has a clear mission and theory of change.

This year, especially, the organization needs your help to serve thousands of students and families facing the devastation the coronavirus has caused, helping them to avoid homelessness, keep food on the table, and assist with funeral expenses, all while working to bridge the educational digital divide that has disproportionately affected our Black and brown communities and children.


About This Year's Event

Choose Success is the annual fundraising event benefitting Communities In Schools of Atlanta.

This year's theme is: Choose Success For Every Address. This is to highlight the work that CIS does in areas of Atlanta that have, historically, not had the resources for students to thrive.

Communities In Schools of Atlanta will present Scott Mills, President of BET, with the Anne Cox Chambers Champion for Kids Award for his leadership and commitment to the mission of Communities In Schools of Atlanta: To surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.

Alston & Bird LLC will receive the Corporate Partner Award for years of pro bono legal service to CIS and its commitment to the organization’s mission for many years.

CIS will present awards to students for outstanding community service projects and to a site coordinator and principal who have excelled in the past year.

The special evening will be a gathering of leaders from Atlanta, the Southeast, and the country.
