More people, more power
Collective Impact is the idea that no single organization can solve large-scale issues and create social change alone.
What Is Collective Impact?
It involves the commitment of a group of change agents from different sectors to work towards a common agenda. Meaningful results happen thanks to five key components of Collective Impact: A common agenda/shared vision, shared measurement, mutually reinforcing activities, continuous communication, and a backbone organization.
It is through Collective Impact that our work to help get kids more active, healthier, happier, and learning better becomes part of a movement.
Active Schools, whose organizational home is within Action for Healthy Kids, is dedicated to making it easier for schools to create an active school environment that provides students with at least 60 minutes a day of physical education and physical activity. They do it by supporting schools in their current reality by serving as a hub for best practices, programs and resources, as well as driving education system and policy change. The Active Schools movement is powered by more than 90 public and private sector partner organizations and 37,000 individual champions affiliated with more than 23,000 schools that serve over 13 million students.Learn More
