Schools can be critical partners for organizations working with youth, but sometimes it is difficult to know how to start. How Schools Work and How to Work with Schools is a guide for those who want the education, health, and social services sectors to work more closely together to improve the health and well-being of young people. The guide describes how the education system works, how to identify leverage points for action, and how to build positive working relationships with educators.
