What We Do


Collaborative Action Network (CAN)

Collaborative Action Networks (CAN) members are content experts who are responsible for diving into the barriers and factors impacting critical data points to cover root causes, capture community voice and perspective to inform collective work, and ensure that those most impacted are informing decisions and shared strategies to improve the global target. CANs determine what work is within their sphere of influence to set short-term, measurable targets that will improve key data points, and they identify barriers to their work to lift to the PAN, PLAN, and FAN.

Aligned Target Action Teams

Entities within the region are doing work that impacts the shared targets of the network. These organizations can choose to align their efforts with those of the Partnership, and receive support and coaching from the Backbone Team as ‘Aligned Target Action Teams‘ to support those alignment efforts.

The Rocky Mountain Partnership supports the work by facilitating CANs who are made up of youth and adult partners committed to moving one indicator at a time.

Role of CANs:

  • Review local and national data, along with local experience to identify high potential strategies to work on collectively
  • Identify best practices within those strategies
  • Develop action plans to those practices which include: identification of resources (realigning and/or new); capacity building and training requirements; and interim measures to track success
