Wisconsin's Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Family, Youth and Community Engagement

Engaging the community to improve the health of all Wisconsinites.

Family, youth, and community engagement (FYCE) aims to strengthen programming by responding to participants’ experiences. The MCH Program is committed to supporting successful partnerships and engagement with family, youth, and community members because this is a key strategy to advance health equity.

Here’s how it works: A Community Engagement Project is implemented with MCH-funded partners, including local public health and tribal health agencies, the Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs Network, adolescent health programs, reproductive health/family planning clinics, and statewide programs. Participating sites complete the Community Engagement Assessment Tool, develop an action plan focusing on one indicator from the assessment, and implement the action plan to support at least one practice change to enhance family, youth, and community engagement.

Check out our resources, including orientation videos, REDCap manuals, and resources to create your annual action plan.
