Bill Milliken Hanging Out and Making a Difference

Bill Milliken, Founder of Communities In Schools (CIS), takes some time to talk with us about his journey from Pittsburg’s pool halls to one of the nation’s pioneering advocates for students throughout the nation.

Milliken found his vocation on the streets helping children and teens coping with poverty, hunger, homelessness, drug addiction and mental illness. He reflected on the importance of simply hanging out — and building trust.
