Inspired by the success of the Harlem Children’s Zone, Promise Neighborhoods are place-based efforts, wrapping children in educational, social and health programs and supportive services from the cradle to college to career. Hayward Promise Neighborhood was funded in 2012 to serve the Jackson Triangle in Hayward, California and/or students that attend six focus schools within the Hayward Unified School District. This webinar will discuss HPN’s cradle to college to career pipeline with an emphasis on its partnership with over ten agencies, led by California State University East Bay. This webinar will explain how HPN is improving educational outcomes by using existing resources and collaborating with programs such as Early Learning Services and Tiburcio Vasquez Health Center’s Promotores de Salud to operationalize a college-going culture. This collaboration enhances collective impact and supports education, health and safety equity.

The Federal Interagency Health Equity Team is a group of 12 federal agencies convened under the National Partnership for Action to End Health Disparities. The NPA is a national movement with the mission to improve the effectiveness of programs that target the elimination of health disparities through coordination of leaders, partners, and stakeholders that are committed to action. The FIHET provides a forum for federal agencies to increase dialog between traditionally siloed programs in ways that enhance cross-agency coordination, maximally leverage existing resources, and increase the impact of federal resources on conditions within communities.
