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, it culminates with the national Jefferson Awards, 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, the organization is announcing the members of the 2021 Class of ChangeMakers —community leaders in the Midlands who have demonstrated a commitment to service and the potential to truly move South Carolina forward.
The 2021 Midlands ChangeMakers class kicked off on September 2, 2021 with an orientation, reception, and networking event for each of the honorees and their guests. Throughout the fall, these ChangeMakers will work both individually and as a cohort to raise awareness of and 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 necessary for successful in college, career, and beyond. The ChangeMakers will also participate in volunteer, community, and other networking activities each month with the goal of raising awareness of Students In Action and inspiring even more young leaders to do their part. The program will culminate in December 2021 with a celebration event, recognizing each of the honorees with a Jefferson Award and celebrating all they have accomplished to make a difference across our Midlands communities.
