Join the SCYC Book Club for Teens

The SCYC Book Club for Teens is a free program that brings together interested teens to discuss issues that are important to them and affect thier lives. There are three chapters of the club, one in Columbia and two in Charleston. The Charleston chapters are in partnership with The Cynthia Hurd Foundation and the Charleston County Library.

SCYC Fellows Program

The SCYC Fellows are social justice and civics minded high school students from across South Carolina. Twenty teens will be selected to spend seven days 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 state!
