Healthy WAY encourages student led teams to work collectively on an identified problem, by reviewing local data, trends, and research to develop a strategic plan of action with key stakeholders in their schools and communities.
Community organizations can partner to invest in initiatives like Healthy WAY to restore hope and resilience in our youth. Tips to ensure success include: Organizational support, a staff mentor dedicated to the project for the entire period, partners in the school systems and venues for the students to share their outcomes.
