"This conference is a great opportunity to share knowledge,
strategies and form partnerships across the Bay Area — which
is exactly what we are asking our community school
partners on the ground to do."

About United Way of the Bay Area

United Way of the Bay Area is a nonprofit organization leading a movement to cut Bay Area poverty in half by 2020. We’re harnessing the collective power of nonprofits, government, corporations, labor and thousands of individuals to create change through giving, advocating, and volunteering. Every year, our programs - SparkPoint, Earn It! Keep It! Save It!, 211, MatchBridge and Community Schools – help more than 250,000 Bay Area residents. We connect people to food and shelter, put people back to work, bring tax dollars back to our community, help youth succeed in school and in the workplace, and move people toward financial stability. Founded in 1922, United Way of the Bay Area serves Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo and Solano Counties. For more information, visit www.uwba.org.

About The Children’s Aid Society

The Children’s Aid Society has been serving children for more than 150 years, a testament to its adaptability to the ever-changing needs of young people. Today, Children’s Aid serves more than 70,000 children and their families at more than 45 sites throughout New York City. All aspects of a child’s development are addressed as he or she grows, from health care to academics to sports and the arts. Because stable children live in stable families, a host of services are available to parents, including housing assistance, domestic violence counseling and health care access. Visit the CAS website. For over 20 years, The Children’s Aid Society has operated community schools in partnership with the New York City Department of Education. Starting with the remarkable success of IS 218 and PS 5 in Washington Heights, the effort has grown to encompass 14 elementary, middle and high schools located in several of New York City’s neediest neighborhoods. These partnerships—which drew upon a rich tradition of community schooling that can be traced back to social reformers such as John Dewey and Jane Addams—became the CAS model. It’s a powerful model because it draws on a strong body of current research about the supports, services and opportunities needed by young people as they move toward productive adulthood.

About the National Center for Community Schools

In 1994, The Children’s Aid Society created the National Center for Community Schools in an effort to respond to the increased demand for information and advice about community schools implementation. NCCS facilitates learning opportunities that draw on CAS's community schools practice in New York City, as well as on lessons learned from around the country, including other models. NCCS also plays a leading role in local and national advocacy to advance the community schools movement and highlight this approach in the broader education agenda. NCCS has facilitated the development of over 15,000 community schools nationally and internationally, including providing assistance to nearly all of this country's major community school initiatives in Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Cincinnati, Grand Rapids, Hartford, Portland and Tulsa.
