Each month at ARTECHOUSE Miami partners with a different non-profit in the city for the month, donating a portion of ticket sale proceeds to the organization. Our charity partner this June is Communities in Schools (CIS) Miami.
Did you know that across the country, approximately 1 in 5 children under 18 live in poverty? Without community support, they are more at risk for missing school, dropping out and failing to earn a high school diploma. This is where Communities in Schools comes in by helping our most vulnerable students stay in school and succeed in life, it is building stronger, healthier and more economically stable communities where every person is capable of reaching their greatest potential.
Communities In Schools of Miami does whatever it takes to help at-risk students stay in school and succeed in life. Based directly inside schools throughout Miami-Dade County, Communities In Schools connects children and their families to basic and critical educational and community-based resources, tailored to each student's specific needs.
What makes CIS of Miami innovative and effective is their evidence-based Integrated Support Services Model that employs both whole school and targeted strategies to impact school and individual student outcomes. The CIS Model places a Site Coordinator to work directly in the school to coordinate and deliver services. Typical services include mentoring, tutoring, counseling, case management, life skills development, job and career readiness, and other needed services provided from partnering social service agencies, businesses, volunteer groups, and CIS of Miami staff.
Throughout the month of June, 20% of the ticket sales booked through this link will be donated directly to Communities in Schools. (Valid from June 1-30, 2019.)
