Guidelines for Successful Partnerships

Youth gain a great deal when every part of a community comes together to support their education, safety, health, mental wellness, and strong social development. Please click the titles below to see the full guidelines for each type of partnership.

  • Between Faith Communities and Government Agencies

    Local community partnerships, which strengthen assets for youth, include those between Fairfax County government agencies and local faith communities. These partnerships are: a) supporting existing county government services; b) are replicating best practice models in underserved or hard to reach communities; and/ or, c) are initiating new models to strengthen service access. Such partnerships are being implemented either in the partner faith community facility or in the partner government building.

  • Between Faith Communities and Area Non-Profits

    We encourage the growing partnerships between Fairfax County area non-profit organizations and local faith communities to strengthen community assets for youth. Partnerships can be implemented within a non-profit organizations or faith community facility. Partnerships can support existing non-profit organization programming or services, replicate best practice models in underserved or hard to reach communities, or initiate new programming.

  • Between Faith Communities and Public Schools

    We encourage the growing partnerships between our local schools and local faith communities. These partnerships can support existing public school programs or programs conducted by a faith community in a public school or in a faith community facility.
