On Wednesday, September 15, 2021, The Milwaukee Urban League along with partner Auer Avenue Community School, 2319 W. Auer Ave, hosted a “Community Resource Fair,” to provide resources and support for Auer Avenue students, families and community members. The event included free COVID-19 vaccinations, backpacks and school supplies for students, and information and resources for local services.

Auer Avenue Community School is one of twelve Milwaukee Public Schools that are currently a part of the Milwaukee Community Schools Partnership (MCSP), which is a collective strategy to transform schools into places where students, families, staff, and the surrounding community can work together to ensure every student is successful.

Community Schools are a proven model to increase a school’s capacity to better engage and align partnerships centered on the self-identified, real-time priorities of schools and communities.

Community Schools place the focus on the whole child by providing academic supports, social and emotional learning, health and wellness, family and community engagement, and a safe and supportive climate.
