Community Education Initiative

Flint’s Community Education Initiative is a community-wide system of support for students and families. A collaborative of organizations working together to establish schools in the Flint Community Schools district as neighborhood hubs, helping to create stronger families, healthier neighborhoods, higher performing schools and higher rates of student academic achievement and success.

The Crim Fitness Foundation serves as the lead agency to implement Community Education in Flint Community Schools.  As the lead agency, the Crim Fitness Foundation ensures Community Education work is aligned with the City of Flint Master Plan, and the vision of the Flint Community Schools.

What is a Community School?

A community school is both a place and a set of partnerships between the school and other community resources.  Its integrated focus on academics, health and social services, youth, community development and community community engagement leads to improved student learning, stronger families, and healthier communities.
