Collective Impact Moves Us Toward a Common Goal

Active Schools isn’t an organization or program. It’s a collective of all who care about providing active schools and developing active, healthy and happy kids.

Life is busy, so we tend to move in our own circles. We know what impact we can have there. But with collective impact, our circles overlap with others and we expand our ability to impact the things we care about.

By creating a network of parents, educators, organizations and advocates, Active Schools makes connections that activate the power of many to work toward the common goal of active schools and active, healthy and happy kids.

Threads Become Rope: How Collective Impact Works

Complex social problems have more than one cause, and no individual, organization, policy or program can solve them alone. That’s why Active Schools brings parents, educators, organizations and advocates together, amplifying the reach and impact of every Active Schools partner organization and individual champion. Each thread, working together, is strong, but as they are woven together, they turn into a powerful rope.

Collective impact is more than that rope. It’s about how we all pull together.

The Bottom Line?

Active Schools’ collective impact helps schools get the support and resources needed to prioritize physical education and physical activity opportunities before, during, and after school.
