Led by the Raritan Bay Area YMCA, five coalition members are participating in a year-long Boundary Spanning Leadership Institute delivered by the Center for Creative Leadership. This team of five coalition members representing sectors including healthcare, community residents, social services, municipal services, and education, are sharing the skills and tools from this Institute with their full coalition to strengthen the coalition’s capacity to make long-term change in their community. The team also includes a community coalition coach who is deeply rooted in the community and acts as an advisor to the team and the larger coalition as they embark on creating a Culture of Health in Perth Amboy. The coalition has developed a blueprint for action, outlining its work and timeline for the remaining three years of grant funding. Scroll past the video to access the link to the blueprint.
