This study aims to enhance our understanding of the impact of UNHCE support through the Well Connected Communities (WCC) grant initiative. “Well Connected Communities (WCC) is a national well-being initiative of America’s Cooperative Extension System in partnership with National 4-H Council. WCC was launched in 2018 and is using the power of combined youth-adult voice and action to recognize and address systemic health inequities. It is scaling successful innovations from this work across the Extension network in order to catalyze ambitious changes at the local, state, and national levels, so that everyone has an equal opportunity to live a better, healthier life” (Center for Community Health and Evaluation, March 2021). The evaluation focuses on the WCC effort to impact participating member’s capacity to connect to other organizations through coalition work. This study is the first of the kind and should be used as a base-line accomplishment.
