Collective Impact is a disciplined, cross-sector approach to solving complex issues on a large scale.
All children, youth and their families have the opportunity to participate and achieve optimal health, development, and well-being in a child-friendly community.
Our strategies will focus on:
All participants share a vision for change that includes a common understanding of the problem and a joint approach to solving the problem through agreed-upon action.
All participating organisations agree on the ways success will be measured and reporter with a short list of common indicators, identified and used for learning and improvement.
A diverse set of stakeholders, typically across sectors, co-ordinate a set of differentiated activities through a mutually reinforcing plan of action.
All players engage in frequent, structured, and open communication to build trust, assure mutual objectives, and create common motivation.
A separate organisation is dedicated to co-ordinating the various dimensions and collaborators involved in the initiative. Supporting backbone infrastructure is essential to ensuring the collective impact effort maintains momentum and facilities impact. The City of Prince George provides backbone support as the community implements its first collective impact initiative.
