Multiplying Good’s goal in South Carolina is to cultivate the next generation of our state’s servant leaders. With that goal in mind, the organization has selected the 2020 class of ChangeMakers in the Upstate — 10 individuals who have demonstrated a commitment to service and the potential to truly move the community forward.
The 2020 Upstate ChangeMakers class will kick off in early February with an orientation and reception event for the honorees and guests.
Throughout the spring, these ChangeMakers will work both individually and as a group to raise financial support for Students In Action, Multiplying Good’s flagship youth-leadership development program that uses service-learning as the vehicle for arming high schoolers with the life skills they need to be successful in college and the workforce.
These 10 ChangeMakers will also participate in volunteer, community, recognition and other networking activities each month with the goal of raising awareness of Students In Action and inspiring even more community leaders to get involved in giving back.
The program will culminate in late April with a celebration event, recognizing each of the 10 honorees with a Jefferson Award and celebrating all they have accomplished to make a difference in the Upstate.
