Become an Intermediary Partner

“Working with the Alliance has helped us significantly expand our reach beyond hospital walls, increase structure and effective collaboration with school and out-of-school time partners and address our community’s priority health needs.”

Why Partner with the Alliance?

Over the past decade, the Alliance has developed tried-and-true methods for making sustainable changes in a variety of community settings to benefit children’s health through the Healthy Schools Program and Healthy Out-of-School Time Initiative. That’s why community-serving organizations partner with us to help improve the health of their populations.

Community-serving organizations know the most about the people and places that make up their vibrant neighborhoods, and can use our evidence-based approaches to create a comprehensive, customized program that leads to sustainable healthy changes.

At the Alliance, we call these critical partners our “intermediaries.” Through our partnership, they gain access to our professional development, training, tools, resources and data to complement their local efforts. Here’s how:

Partners can access virtual, on-demand trainings and receive a in-person consultation with us.

Learn from up to four customized, live virtual trainings delivered by our national health experts.

Schools and sites can access our Member Engagement and Support Team whenever they have a question.

Receive detailed progress reports about school or site progress toward making healthy changes.

Choose from training videos, materials and curricula to make healthy changes at schools and in out-of-school time settings.
