Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2005, $739,982)

Communities In Schools will continue the strategy underway to facilitate the process of self-determination by communities, by providing training, technical assistance and access to a network of resources, partnerships and peers.

The overall project strategy is to act in a program- and process-design consultant capacity to the community, so that their own leaders and stakeholders will emerge and take responsibility for CIS locally. This also ensures that the community is invested in the process from the outset and takes full ownership, which is essential for sustainability.NCA/NCF
