Three community groups that focus on children’s health, welfare and education have won Stanford University 2019 Community Partnership Awards.

This year’s award winners are the Children’s Health Council, CrashCourse and Future Advancers of Science and Technology.

Stanford’s Office of Government and Community Relations has sponsored the awards program for 15 years to recognize the partnerships among Stanford and its neighbors and to celebrate collaborative efforts that tackle real-world problems and advance the public good.

“Each of the awardees selected this year exhibit a strong focus on genuine partnership to address major challenges facing children in our community – from youth mental health to access to STEM education in underserved communities to health awareness about concussions,” said Jean McCown, associate vice president for government and community relations.

FAST is a 2018-19 and 2019-20 Diversity and Inclusion Innovation Funds (DIF) Project.
