Communities In Schools programs surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life. Our evidence-based approach, adapted to meet each community’s unique needs, is the basis for our success.

Basic Needs: A student cannot focus in the classroom if he or she is hungry, cold or tired, or cannot see the board. Site coordinators see to it that students' basic needs are met each day.

Enrichment: Our Site coordinators enroll students in a wide variety of after-school and summer programs, field trips and youth conferences to help them gain experience that is essential to meeting college and career goals.

Academic Assistance: Our site coordinators work hard to ensure that students have the resources to progress academically. From providing students with tutors to finding and creating quiet spaces where students can study, we do whatever it takes to create an optimal learning environment for our students.

Life Skills: Through one-on-one workshops, team building, and guest speakers, we work with students to develop social-emotional learning, character education, social skills building, and conflict resolution.

Behavioral Interventions: Many of our students face and overcome difficult obstacles in their lives. However, their survival skills aren’t always effective in the classroom or in the workplace. Our program teaches students positive ways to cope with anger, conflict resolution, and other strategies to keep them focused on school.

Family Engagement: Site coordinators connect families with counselors and social workers to make sure that home is a healthy, nurturing environment where a student can feel safe.

This program is for students at CAST Tech High School.

Healthy Relationships is a multisession, small-group, skills-building program for men and women living with HIV/AIDS. The program is designed to reduce participants’ stress related to safer sexual behaviors and disclosure of their serostatus to family, friends, and sex partners. The program is based on social cognitive theory, which states that people learn by observing others successfully practicing new behavior.

  • Defining stress and reinforcing coping skills with HIV-positive people across three life areas:
  • Disclosing to family and friends
  • Disclosing to sex partners and
  • Building healthier and safer relationships
  • Using modeling, role-play, and feedback to teach and practice skills related to coping with stress.
  • Teaching decision-making skills around the issue of disclosure of HIV status.
  • We provide participants with personal feedback reports to motivate a change in risky behaviors and continuance of protective behaviors.
  • We use popular movie clips to set up disclosure and risk-reduction scenarios to stimulate discussions and role-plays.

Promotoras are state-certified community health workers who offer in-home parenting courses focusing on parenting strengths, growth and development of children, establishing nurturing routines, and guiding children's behavior. The parent education classes use a hands-on curriculum with a concurrent children's program, educational groups, follow-up services, and networking activities. The goal is to ensure children are kindergarten-ready and children have a safe, nurturing home.

A unique pilot program created by Councilwoman Gonzales, along with Family Service, it uses a peer-to-peer mentor model, allowing trained community members known as Promotoras, as well as parents in the same targeted zip code areas, to provide valuable in-home healthcare education to families.

District 5, zip codes 78207 and 78205 primarily, but the Promotoras can serve families throughout Bexar County for families with children under the age of 10.

Life Skills: Through one-on-one workshops, team building, and guest speakers, we work with students to develop social-emotional learning, character education, social skills building, and conflict resolution.

Behavioral Interventions: Many of our students face and overcome difficult life obstacles. However, their survival skills aren’t always effective in the classroom or the workplace. Our program teaches students positive ways to cope with anger, conflict resolution, and other strategies to keep them focused on school.

Family Engagement: Site coordinators connect families with counselors and social workers to ensure the home is a healthy, nurturing environment where students can feel safe.

This program is for students at Briscoe Elementary School.

Communities In Schools programs surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life. Our evidence-based approach, adapted to meet each community’s unique needs, is the basis for our success.

Basic Needs: A student cannot focus in the classroom if he or she is hungry, cold, tired, or cannot see the board. Site coordinators see that students' basic needs are met each day.

Enrichment: Our Site coordinators, enroll students in after-school and summer programs, field trips, and youth conferences to help them gain experience essential to meeting college and career goals.

Academic Assistance: Our site coordinators work hard to ensure that students have the resources to progress academically. From providing students with tutors to finding and creating quiet spaces where students can study, we do whatever it takes to create an optimal learning environment.

AGORA Kids is the children’s ministry at AGORA. Two weeks out of the month we do an outreach event in one of our local housing projects: Alazan/ Apache Courts, Villa Veramendi, or the Cassiano Homes. We invite kids to join us for a fun program.

The other two Saturday’s of the month we do "Core Kids." This time is spent investing in a smaller group of kids, teaching character development, life skills and growing deeper in relationships with God and each other. Each event consists of hand movement songs, games, food, fun and most importantly a life relevant lesson that will help develop their character to become the best they can be!

Please call the number below for more information.

Free.

Monday CLOSED Tuesday 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM Wednesday 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM Thursday 9:00 AM - 9:00 PM Friday 9:00 AM - 9:00 PM Saturday 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM Sunday CLOSED
