The Healthy Youth Initiative works to create a caring community promoting healthy youth and families. The Healthy Youth Initiative has four core focus areas:
The Healthy Youth Initiative recognizes that many of the issues confronted by today's youth go well beyond the power of school districts to influence; thus we employ a community-based approach that supports public schools while engaging cities and other governments, health organizations, law enforcement, civic organizations, faith-based organizations, non-profit agencies, parents and youth themselves in positive and transformational change supporting healthy life choices.
Originated as the state-funded Issaquah Community Network, the Healthy Youth Initiative grew out of a 2014 unification with the Issaquah Schools Foundation. The Healthy Youth Initiative is now solely funded by generous donors to the Issaquah Schools Foundation.
The Healthy Youth Initiative has several offerings that create a network, resources and support for children and families in the greater Issaquah area.
