Apply for Leadership South Carolina!
Our core program is comprised of six regularly scheduled sessions from September to April. Most sessions run from midday Wednesday to midday Friday. One session, other than the mandatory Orientation Session, during the class year may be missed without penalty.
Each class participates in a class project to demonstrate leadership skills. Past classes have taken on projects to fight hunger by raising funds for the state Food Banks, supporting the SC Special Olympics Mid-Winter Games, as well as reaching out to the South Carolina School for the Deaf and Blind by renovating dorm rooms and installing touch and standard Promethean "Smart" boards.
Each session is designed to enlighten participants on the challenges that face South Carolina and the region. Topics include education, economic development, environment, energy usage, historical perspective, social issues, health, workforce development and natural resources. Upon completion, each participant has a deeper understanding of South Carolina's issues and the decision-makers who are leading the way.
Tuition of $3,500 includes all conference materials, scheduled group meals, and double-occupancy lodging. Single rooms can be arranged on a space-available basis for an additional cost. Limited financial assistance is available.
The application for our next class (the Class of 2014) is available now.
