Healthy Living & Learning Communities

Building on the success of the OTL Network, the Healthy Living and Learning Communities (HLLC) initiative represents the next phase of Schott’s education justice and opportunity strategy.

HLLC provides a framework – including education, health, safety, school climate, community power, etc. – to equip parents, students and public school systems to create healthy community climates that are just and fair. The objectives of the HLLC initiative are three-fold:

1 Assess communities’ cross-cutting capacity to meet the whole child needs
2 Provide recommendations and prescriptions for needed supports

3 Support the community actions and partnerships that have proven to lead to sustainable systemic change. More than 25 cities and communities across the nation will be engaged in the HLLC initiative
