The Center for Health and Health Care in Schools is thrilled to launch our updated Partner Build Grow Action Guide.
Partner Build Grow, the Action Guide outlines practical steps to help you align school and community efforts and resources that enable children to succeed – and to sustain these efforts through collaboration and systems change.
It breaks down the process into four interconnected prongs – Building an Action Team, Mapping Assets, Connecting with the Policy Environment, and Communications – that will help you engage with cross-sector partners, develop an action plan for your specific context, access viable financing and regulatory strategies, and create communications objectives. It can be used to maintain an effective initiative or to help schools and communities determine new actions that will best benefit their children. The revisions include a new section for those just starting the process, and new and updated information in each prong, as well as within the corresponding worksheets. Check it out here.
