Power:Ed, a philanthropy of South Carolina Student Loan Corporation, has awarded an $85,000 grant to Multiplying Good, an organization piloting innovative professional development programs for students here in the Palmetto State.
“We’re thrilled to be joining forces with this distinguished community partner,” Power:Ed Director Sara Fisher says. “They’re working hard to keep futures bright for South Carolina’s high school students.”
Multiplying Good will use its $85,000 grant to expand Students in Action (SIA)—a three-year service-learning opportunity for youth in grades 9-12—to historically underserved areas in rural South Carolina. SIA emphasizes future college and career success through skill-building and leadership activities in high school, equipping its participants with the tools they need to thrive in a rapidly transforming 21st-century economy.
“SIA empowers young people,” says Multiplying Good Executive Director Heather Love. “Programs like this ensure that young adults will be prepared for future success, making a difference in their local communities as they learn and grow in high school.”
