We’re a nonprofit organization dedicated to ensuring that all students have access to healthy school environments where they can learn and thrive.
Mission + Vision
Healthy Schools Campaign advocates for policies and practices that allow all students, teachers and staff to learn and work in a healthy school environment. Healthy Schools Campaign envisions a society in which:
Every student, faculty and staff member, regardless of race or socioeconomic background, has equal access to a healthy school environment.
Schools serve as leaders making the critical connection between learning and health.
Students have fewer risks of disease, lead healthier adult lives, act as stewards of the environment and achieve their highest potential.
Healthy Schools Campaign’s work is guided by our core values:
We believe that families should have confidence that the school environment will be healthy and that school leaders will promote healthy behaviors.
We believe that students learn from example. A healthy school teaches students to value their own health and that of their environment.
We are concerned about the growing disparities in our country and believe that a quality education for all students is a necessary ingredient in a civil society.
We believe that all families, faculty, staff, students and community members must have a voice in decisions that affect the school environment.
We believe that meaningful and sustainable change occurs when informed, engaged and empowered stakeholders collaborate with school officials and policymakers.
