Encouraging healthy behaviors in young people through Communities in Action

Communities in ActionStudents from the University of Washington School of Social Work are joining with community leaders in central and southeast Seattle to increase young people’s chances of achieving success.

This program, Communities in Action, helps communities use data about their youth to make informed decisions on how to meet kids’ needs and develop a plan of action to meet those needs. The communities drive the plan, with local organizations and schools putting the plan into play in ways that increase protective factors and reduce risk factors to promote healthy child development.
