Community Partnerships

Alliance for Children & Youth / Communities In Schools encourages community and youth programs to work together more efficiently. The Alliance/CIS facilitates, monitors, and orchestrates needed programs with the goal of fitting them into funded programs. We are adults working with adults to help children prepare for life.
