SCYC Fellows Program

** Due to COVID-19, SCYC Summer Fellows will be offered virtually. While we are disappointed to not be able to gather in person, we are excited that the virtual format allows us to accept everyone who applies and to reach teens from across the state, region, and nation!

The SCYC Fellows are social justice and civics minded high school students from across South Carolina. Students will participate in community building exercises, learn civil rights history through activities and virtual 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!
