Our Mission:

Counseling In Schools promotes the emotional and social growth of children so that they can thrive in school and succeed in life.

Counseling In Schools places staff in schools to create and foster community-based relationships that enable New York City’s children to thrive academically, socially, and emotionally—awakening possibilities and leading to success.

We envision and work toward a bright, resilient future that awakens possibilities for New York City’s children, families and school staff. Engaging in a partnership with the entire school community, CIS staff create programs that equip children, families, teachers, and administrators with the right tools for preventing problems and coping with the challenges they face. Working with strengths and through communities, our staff joins the journey of children, families, teachers and administrators to reach our full potential.
