Become a Partner

CIS views a partnership as a significant relationship with an individual, group or organization such as a businesses, faith-based institution, college, community group, etc. Your organization/company may wish to support one of our campuses with one activity or multiple activities or visits that will impact the students; ultimately leading to academic success for students.


Partners can provide the fundamental support needed to bridge the gaps between underachieving and academic success. The time invested as a partner will also allow Communities In Schools to leverage and maximize resources and limit possible duplication of services.

CIS is seeking organizations who wish to make significant contributions that will impact the lives of our youth. There are three kinds of partners:


Sign up for one or two activities. If your organization is not yet ready to commit to three or more activities, we ask you to identify the one or two that you are most interested in doing.


For organizations making this commitment, the Strategic Partnerships Department will help match your interests to a specific school and then work with you and the school to develop a partnership plan.


This type of relationship involves multiple structured activities with students on the CIS campus and includes in-kind or financial support to the partnership plan

Are you interested in becoming a community partner? Please fill out this form and we will get in touch with you shortly.

If you have questions or are interested in helping CIS in some other way, please contact the Strategic Partnerships Department at 713-654-1515 or partnership@cis-houston.org
