The United Nations Georgetown RISE Youth Corps initiative is a high impact, transformative learning program centered on giving students real life skills and experiences in Georgetown County with an integrated teaching/learning component that links county goals to the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The Youth Corps is intended to contribute to our industry and public institutions, and also to inspire a new generation of professionals in our county to live, work, and play here. Students will work on a project or internship in the county as designated by county leaders, public and private, for a pre-specified amount of credits that fit within their curriculum. This would be combined with a class led by CCU instructor(s) with special lectures from county leaders on sustainable development and coastal resilience.
Student reports are organized by UN Sustainable Development Goals. To view reports click on one of the goals below. To learn more about the project visit the Georgetown RISE website.
This program is generously funded by the Frances P. Bunnelle Foundation in collaboration with Coastal Carolina University.
