Extension's National Framework for Health Equity

5.3 Build the capacity of local residents to lead community-based work through the establishment of health-focused volunteer credentialing programs.

5.4 Support the creation and development of community coalitions explicitly focused on addressing the social determinants of health.

5.5 Compensate community members for partnering with Extension as peer champions and community guides.

5.6 Create an expectation that Extension educators demonstrate awareness of who constitutes a community before designing an intervention. Educators must be informed by the community’s history of interacting with state, tribal, and local governments both before and throughout the process of launching health initiatives.
