About Healthy Learners

Healthy Learners is on a mission to transform the futures of children in poverty in South Carolina. Research has proven that education is the key for children to go further in life. It empowers them to obtain higher-wage jobs, make positive life choices, and learn to invest in their future communities to make them stronger, healthier, and vibrant. For many children in poverty, their educational success is at risk because of fixable healthcare challenges that have not been addressed, known as Health Barriers to Learning. Healthy Learners was created to address these challenges head-on and serve as the catalyst to ensure every child receives the health care they need to thrive in school. Healthy Learners works collaboratively with communities, schools, healthcare providers, and families to remove health barriers to learning through screening, referral, and access to medical services. Healthy Learners serves Pre-K through 12th grade students to improve academic and health-related outcomes.
