Greetings Coordinators, 
Happy September! As we embark on a new school year, let's take a moment to never lose sight of why we do this work. We are an integral part of our communities and help contribute to student and family success. Please join us in celebrating Coordinator's Appreciation Week on Sept 25-29. Connect with us via Thunderclap and let's highlight our work, we deserve it!
Damion Morgan - Co-chair for the Coordinator's Network


This month's Coordinator Spotlight is you!

In honor of Coordinators Appreciation Week later this month, we've compiled thank you notes from the Coalition Staff and other community school initiatives to show our love and appreciation to all coordinators out there. Thank you for your leadership, commitment to equity, and unwavering dedication to youth and families!   


The Coalition, Communities In Schools, Beacon National Network, Netter Center for Community Partnerships, and the National Center for Community Schools have come together to host the first ever Coordinators Appreciation Week on September 25-29 to lift up and honor our community school coordinators.  Tune in on social media to see all the celebrations. 

Please join us on September 27 at 7:30 PM EST for our first Twitter Chat   of the school year focusing on the role of coordinators.
