Communities In Schools

The ABC Zilker Kite Festival is a fundraiser. Our non-profit partner and beneficiary is Communities In Schools of Central Texas. All proceeds from the Kite Festival go to supporting the mission and programs of this Austin-based non-profit organization.


Communities In Schools is a dropout prevention program.
Through campus-based programs and special projects, Communities In Schools creates a network of volunteers, social services, businesses, and community resources that work together to break down barriers and help students succeed. And the formula works: last year, 99% of  students served intensively by Communities In Schools stayed in school.

Communities In Schools – Central Texas serves thousands of children and families every year, providing options where there once were none. With your help, Communities In Schools can help kids stay in school and become productive members of the Central Texas workforce and community.
