Economically disadvantaged (ED) students in the community of Wake County, North Carolina are far under-performing in school, as compared to non-ED students and data shows that they are missing more school related to health reasons. Pair this with the lack of a health care system that adequately reaches this population of youth and this becomes a systemic barrier to youth being healthy and meeting their potential. Team Yes! has been working on a solution for over three years and they need your help to establish the first school-based health center (SBHC) in Wake County.
