Effective community partnerships help to support youth and teens, especially those that have adverse living experiences. Partnerships should be based on mutual respect and strengths based relationships. Relationships establish continuity between programs and community agencies with a firm footing in equity and sustainability. When you build and maintain a good partnership, your work is made not only easier but also more transparent, representative of community interests and needs, effective, and impactful.
