The Coalition for Community Schools envisions schools as centers for creating flourishing communities where everyone belongs, works together, and thrives. We believe in the power of community, that when people who live and work in any given area come together often, they will instill hope, overcome challenges and advance their own well-being now and for future generations. We are an alliance of local, state, and national partners that advocate for more Community Schools as the best evidence-based strategy to unite schools, families and communities to ensure all children have the support they need to be safe and healthy, access to the equal opportunities they deserve for prosperity, and a sense of responsibility for civic engagement.

Our bold goal of 25,000 Community Schools by 2025 will reach over 10,000,000 students and their families, is guided by our values:

EQUITY: Because disparities and inequalities exist, we advocate for and work toward justice, equality, and opportunity for all. We seek to ensure fairness, access and resources for all by promoting an environment built on compassion and righteousness.

DEMOCRACY: Because exploitation exists in hierarchical institutions and organizations, we advocate for and work toward diversity and inclusion in decision making for all members of a community to have equal voice in promoting policies and practices out of concern for one another.

HARMONY: Because the well-being of children depends in large part on the willingness of adults to work together on their behalf, we model collaboration through our investments of human and financial resources that are commensurate of our responsibility of supporting the healthy development of future generations.

grounded in practicing our principles:

BUILD ON COMMUNITY STRENGTHS by seeking the voices of those most marginalized, co-designing solutions and opportunities, and supporting their leadership.

INVEST IN TRUSTING RELATIONSHIPS by continuing to meet, encourage and support one another, through good and challenging times, personally and toward our purpose and call.

COMMIT TO CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT by combining rigorous research, reliable practices, and community wisdom to guide our partnerships and work toward measurable and equitable results.

and will be achieved through three core strategies:

Catalyze Collaboration: The Coalition will mobilize Network leaders, partners and local affiliates to encourage elected officials and executive leaders to create cross-sector collaborations to sustain and scale Community Schools.

Cultivate Quality: The Coalition will prepare and support Community School professionals and their partners for the development of high-quality Community Schools toward equitable outcomes.

Celebrate Success: The Coalition will be influencers by lifting up transformative and innovative local solutions and stories showing impact.
