It takes a comprehensive, complementary, and well-coordinated range of programs and services to ensure every child has what they need to learn, grow, and thrive. When school-based health centers, community organizations, youth, families, schools, and districts partner to provide these supports in a community, we build our collective capacity for systems change at the same time. If a partnership ecosystem is, “the network of interconnected organizations and adults who provide a system of supports for students,” then who are the people and organizations in your school-community partnership ecosystem, how are they connected, and what are you doing to strengthen individual relationships?

In this interactive virtual session, participants will begin to create a map of the relationships within their school-based health ecosystem and identify what types of partnership and collaboration they are engaged in (or aiming for). Our guiding tools from YDEKC’s School and Community Partnership Toolkit will provide you with resources to explore during the workshop and to apply after the session in depth.


  1. Participants will identify the relationships that exist within their SBHC’s Partnership Ecosystems and actions that develop and sustain those individual partnerships.
  2. Participants will identify strategies for building and managing relationships with people and organizations towards long-term sustainability
  3. Participants will learn different models of partnership and actions to support partnerships
  4. Participants will assess what type of partnership they are in or striving for


This workshop will be hosted as part of the King County School-Based Annual Retreat. While the target audience is King County school-based health partners, it is open to those statewide. It is designed for leaders at all levels within school-based health centers, as well as in schools, school districts, and community-based organizations who are developing or managing partnerships between schools and community-based organizations.
