SUCCEED as Leaders


This summer, the Krause Center hosted the SUCCEED as Leaders (Summer Undergraduate Community-based Civic Engagement Experience for Development as Leaders) summer service learning intensive program.

As part of strategic objective 1.4 to promote college-wide participation in service learning and civic engagement (see The LEAD Plan 2018), 18 SUCCEED as Leaders Fellows are serving at fourteen approved community partner sites including Charleston Development Academy, Four Charleston County School District Schools, Gadsden Green at the Charleston Housing Authority, Metanoia, Camp Rise Above, Backpackers Film Camp, Camp Happy Days, Boy Scouts of America, Down Syndrome Association of the Lowcountry, Cannon YMCA, and The Citadel Science Technology Engineering Arts and Math (STEAM) Camp. 

In addition to serving children and individuals with disabilities, SUCCEED Fellows also help with scholarly research and data collection, develop training materials on social issues, journal about their experiences, and present in a public forum in the upcoming school year.
