Community School Initiative

What is a Community School?

Brown County United Way serves as the anchor partner and co-investor to the Community Schools Initiative with  Green Bay Area Public Schools. Our work supports the strategic planning and development of the initiative,  strengthens the neighborhood and families through complimentary investments strategies like Neighborhood  Partnership grants and other place-based work. The vision of Community Schools for the Green Bay Area Public School District, along with Brown County United Way and other partners in this work, is to provide students and families with integrated and quality academic, enrichment, health, and social services to succeed in school and in life. Together, as a Community School initiative our goal is to have improved learning, stronger families, and a healthier community.
