The SCYC Fellows are social justice and civics minded high school students from the Midlands. Two students from each Columbia high school will be invited to spend four days and three nights on the Columbia campus of the University of South Carolina. During their residence, students will participate in community building exercises, learn civil rights history through activities and field trips, plan to lead a workshop on race and reconciliation, and learn how to plan and implement a project in their home community.
Come build lasting bonds with other SCYC Fellows that will bridge across the entire Midlands!
