Healthy Green Schools & Colleges (HGS&C)
Healthy Green Schools & Colleges (HGS&C) is a national nonprofit organization, works to ensure that schools can provide students with healthy environments, nutritious food, health services, and opportunities for physical activity.
Our approach is strategic and comprehensive. Drawing on our work in Chicago Public Schools, we develop policy and program recommendations supporting healthy schools and advocate for these recommendations at the local, state, and national levels.
We also help to strengthen the leadership skills of parents, students and school staff, and administrators so they can advocate on their own behalf, and we work to build support for student health and wellness in the education sector and beyond. Learn more about our approach in this brief video.
