Communities Invested in Healthy Life Trajectories of African American Boys
Our goal is to develop community coalitions to promote the well-being and future success of African American boys and other youth. Coalitions are being built in two locations: St. Paul, Minnesota and Birmingham, Alabama. Coalition members include parents, teachers, students, and community members. Coalitions are following the Communities that Care (CTC) model to establish and carry out their vision for the community. Coalition members will identify community strengths and areas they would like to improve. They will use this information to develop and implement a community action plan. Coalition members will also collect data to evaluate how youth and families are benefiting from coalition activities over time.St. PaulBirmingham
The Birmingham Community Coalition is a partnership between a local middle school, local community-based organizations, and the University of Alabama at Birmingham aimed to strengthen relationships between students, teachers, caregivers and other community members to promote the well-being and future success of youth. Funding to initiate the coalition and evaluate its early work is provided by the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities. Coalition members are using the Communities that Care model to guide project activities.
