ALAMEDA COUNTY HEALTH CARE
Healthy Schools and Communities Initiatives
Young people’s health and academic success are deeply connected.
Our health and education systems should be too.
Ten years ago, we launched the first of several local systems building initiatives that we now refer to as our Healthy Schools and Communities Initiatives. We currently support 11 initiatives actively at work in different regions of the county, including school health initiatives and community schools planning initiatives.
Focused on partnership, systems integration, and equity, these initiatives bring together partners from different sectors to align around a common vision and set of actions for improving health and education outcomes for all youth. We provide facilitation, coaching, technical assistance, and training to support successful collaborations that leverage the strengths, resources, and expertise of each partner.
