COLUMBIA, SC (November 9, 2021) – For the past 49 years, Multiplying Good has believed in the power of service. Through activation, training, and recognition, they continue to unleash the potential in individuals around the country to do more. From building confidence in people’s ability to make a difference, to delivering the skills needed to do it well, Multiplying Good’s programs culminate with the national Jefferson Awards every year, the country’s most prestigious honor for service and volunteerism.
The goal of Multiplying Good in South Carolina is to cultivate the next generation of our state’s servant leaders. With that goal in mind, today the organization is announcing its Students In Action Fall Youth Leadership Conference. The conference will be held on Friday, November 12 on Allen University’s campus in Chappelle Hall from 9 AM to 2 PM. This is the first in-person student conference Multiplying Good has held in nearly two years due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Multiplying Good’s Students In Action program is the organization’s flagship youth leadership development initiative that uses service-learning as the vehicle for arming teens with the life skills necessary for success in college, career, and beyond. Nearly 50 middle and high schools participate in Students In Action across the state, and six of these school-based teams will be represented on Friday. Twice-annual leadership conferences are the cornerstone of the Students In Action program and Multiplying Good is expecting as many as 90 youth to attend.
Students In Action teams from the following schools will be in attendance, two of which have received national recognition in recent years:
Lexington High School (Lexington District 4) – National Gold Jefferson Award honorees in 2019 and South Carolina’s Most Outstanding Students In Action team for 2019.
McCormick High School (McCormick County School District)
Richland One Middle College (Richland School District 1)
Spring Hill High School (Lexington School District 5)
Wade Hampton High School (Hampton County School District 1)
Wren High School (Anderson School District 1) – Wren High’s team is the reigning National Silver Jefferson Award Honoree and is South Carolina’s Most Outstanding Students In Action team for 2021.
