Our Mission

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

Trades Night

Changing the narrative to “construction is a great pathway to success!” This is a free community event for all ages! Participate in operating equipment & power tools! No ticket required for attendees!

The community and all school districts are invited to participate in a HANDS-ON experience where you can talk with companies who work and train people in the trades. From electricians to welders to general contractors and subcontractors, all will be there to share their firsthand experience and various employment opportunities.

*Pants and closed toed shoes required for participants.

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 support and empower students to confront and overcome personal challenges and structural barriers, and achieve success. 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.
