Advancing Equity through Summer and School-Year Partnerships

The Forum for Youth Investment

According to The Aspen Institute’s From a Nation at Risk to a Nation at Hope report, school-community coordination is critical to supporting children’s wellbeing. Building on this, new research from the National Academies of Sciences, titled Shaping Summertime Experiences: Opportunities to Promote Healthy Development and Well-Being for Children and Youth, highlights the role of summertime – a unique opportunity to foster such cross-sector partnerships. The importance of these partnerships are more important than ever before, given the trauma, adversity, food insecurity, and other disruptions that children and families are experiencing.

This webinar will share success stories and best practices of school and community collaboration to support children’s mental and physical health. Attendees will have the opportunity to reflect and discuss the current uncertainty around what “back-to-school” may look like.
