Committed to making a significant contribution toward positively influencing the health and learning capacity of students in British Columbia, the Directorate of Agencies for School Health (DASH BC) helps inspire school communities to adopt a comprehensive school health approach. This approach offers a practical framework for teachers, students, families, schools and communities to work together to create plans that will enhance student health and learning. It encourages children and youth to make healthy choices about their lifestyle, schools and the communities in which they live.

DASH BC exemplifies trusted leadership in the field of school health through its successful work with cross sector partners. DASH BC has facilitated shared learning, advocacy, development of promising practices and delivery of leading school health programs.

DASH BC uses its deep understanding of comprehensive school health and its network of leaders to deliver and facilitate innovative school health initiatives to directly benefit the health of students and school communities. It also creates meeting opportunities for those who care about school health to connect, share knowledge, and learn with and from each other.
