We begin our presentation of the eight Healthy Communities • Healthy Youth (HC • HY) initiatives with Traverse Bay Area’s GivEm40 24.7 (GivEm40) to illustrate an initiative that intentionally chose to go sector deep versus spreading its efforts equally across a multitude of community sectors. The hallmark of GivEm40 is the exceptional buy-in of the educational system, with all 19 of the area school system superintendents making strong commitments to the initiative. By beginning our presentation of the HC • HY approaches with a model that emphasizes sector-specific depth as its starting point, we are positioned to build toward applications that prioritize more complex cross-sector collaborations.
