    Summer Leadership Opportunities

    Do you know a middle or high school student leader looking for summer leadership opportunities?

    Then have them join us at the 2019 4-H Pinckney Leadership Program sponsored by South Carolina 4-H. 

    The 4-H Pinckney Leadership program is a week-long program designed for students who are looking to develop their leadership abilities and awareness in civic engagement.  Founded after the late Senator, Clementa Pinckney, the program is aimed to empower students to serve with compassion, lead with humility, and inspire others through integrity.

    It is our hope that after becoming a member of the Pinckney Leadership Program students will be equipped to influence the state of South Carolina as a stronger leader, a positive role model, and an inspiration to other youth.  Thus impacting their community, such as Senator Pinckney impacted the world.

    Spaces are limited and the application deadline is quickly approaching, so please pass this wonderful leadership opportunity on to your students as soon as possible.  For additional details, see attached the applications and flyers.  If you have any questions feel free to contact me at or (864) 986-1195.
