Creating Healthier Futures!


Welcome to AmeriCorps Healthy Futures, a dynamic initiative powered by the United Way of Anderson County! Our vision is clear: to make Anderson County the healthiest county in South Carolina. We're on a mission to address critical issues related to substance misuse, mental health, and behavioral well-being.


Our Approach: At the heart of our program are dedicated AmeriCorps members serving as mentors and contributing to our education and outreach efforts. Through their commitment and passion, we aim to provide 12,000 hours of mentoring, and 12,000 unique touches with community members creating positive and lasting impacts on the lives of those we serve.


Camp Mariposa - Transformative Weekends for Youth: Experience the transformative power of Camp Mariposa, our primary vehicle of change, designed for youth aged 9-17. This weekend camp is where kids come to transform their lives, fostering resilience and equipping them with the tools needed for a brighter future. 


Milestones in Mentoring: With 15 AmeriCorps members serving as mentors, we're building a community of support and empowerment. Our mentors are the pillars of change, helping youth navigate the challenges they face.  They attend weekend camps with our youth and an extra activity each month where the youth are exposed to community service, college tours, sporting events, and other opportunities that expose them to possibilities. 


Education and Outreach Initiatives: Our Education and Outreach team is at the forefront of change, organizing workshops for youth and families that foster development and resilience. With the goal of reaching 12,000 unique individuals, our team also actively participates in community events, sharing valuable information on substance abuse, mental health, and behavioral well-being.


Numbers That Matter:

  • 12,000 hours of mentoring
  • 12,000 unique individuals reached through education and outreach
