Communities In Schools

Communities In Schools is Central Texas’ leading dropout prevention program. Through campus-based programs and special projects, Communities In Schools creates a network of volunteers, social services, businesses and community resources that work together to break down barriers and help students succeed. The XY-Zone Project supports at-risk young men on their journey into manhood by teaching the core values of respect, responsibility, relationships, role models and reaching out. Impact Austin’s grant funds the salaries of two full-time caseworkers—one each at two different high school campuses in the Austin Independent School District. The grant also provides funds for related materials, community service projects and field trips for the 50 young men (ages 13 to 18) on each campus who participate in the XY-Zone Project.
