Our Mission

Our mission is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.

‘Tis the season to give!

Communities In Schools of Spokane County partners with Tree of Sharing to provide our students with a holiday gift.

Oftentimes, this is the only gift they will receive.

You can help us make the season merry for our students in two ways:

1. You can take a gift tag for our students online here: This will be available soon!

2. You can be a mall booth volunteer at one of the malls. Shifts are 2-3 hours and you can sign up here: Tree of Sharing

Communities In Schools of Spokane County: Serving Students and Schools

We believe ALL students, regardless of race, gender, zip code, or socioeconomic background should have what they need to realize their potential in school and beyond.

Help us empower students to confront and overcome personal challenges and structural barriers. At home, at school and in between, kids need you!

In Spokane County, 1 in 6 children under the age of 18 live in poverty. Communities in Schools works directly inside schools, building relationships that empower disadvantaged students to succeed inside and outside the classroom.

Bank of America Neighborhood Champion

We’re thrilled to share that we are one of Bank of America’s 2020 Neighborhood Champions here in Spokane. Many of the young people we serve were already facing challenges which have only grown in light of the coronavirus and the need to quarantine. This grant will help us continue to serve youth in Spokane and ensure they have the tools they need to overcome this difficult time. This is such a unique opportunity for funding and leadership training and we can’t wait to build on our work to continue supporting local youth in our community!
