This Roundtable Discussion highlights the work of five discussants from community-based organizations, school districts, and universities at varying levels of training and expertise (organizational leadership, training directors, professors, and students) currently working in diverse regions (e.g., Texas, New York, California, and Oregon). Through local and national partnerships, the discussants have supported the educational, emotional, physical, and mental well-being of adolescents living in predominantly low income, urban communities. Multidisciplinary perspectives (public health, social work, education, and counseling, community, and applied psychology) are represented, ensuring the discussion of prevention and promotion in a variety of contexts. Specifically, themes related to identifying potential partnerships, engaging in community- and relationship-building activities, and co-constructing research questions will be addressed to support early stage professionals and students. Additionally, discussants will address issues related to activities after RPPs are established; this includes best practices in communication, joint decision-making, capacity building, and dissemination in policy contexts. Considerations related to securing funding for partnership work, establishing memoranda of understanding (MOUs) or other data sharing / partnership agreements, and translating findings will be discussed.
