AmeriCorps is an opportunity for individuals of all ages and backgrounds to give their time and talent to strengthen communities. At Healthy Learners, we are committed to serving more children in more communities across South Carolina and the work of AmeriCorps members is enabling us to expand into additional counties and provide more services across the state. This program is funded by The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) and The United Way Association of South Carolina (UWASC).
