Facilitate Healthy School Initiatives
At DASH, we deliver and facilitate innovative initiatives to directly benefit the health and learning of students and school communities. Our focus includes the promotion of healthy eating, physical activity and mental well-being for all members of the school community. Our work is guided by Comprehensive School Health (CSH), an internationally recognized framework which addresses school health in a planned, integrated, and holistic way.

We work closely with our partners to create tailored resources to support school communities to help them implement healthy school initiatives that resonates within their regional context.
DASH uses its expertise to help school communities shape and realize their healthy school goals by developing action plans, providing resources and linking with community services and supports.
