Youth Leadership & Youth Education Enrichment

Palmetto CAP’s Youth Education Enrichment and Youth Leadership programs empower children and young adults to grow into successful contributing members of our community by building character, providing academic support and imparting essential life skills.

Services include a free summer camp, character education, youth employment and school uniform assistance.  Young people can also participate in the SC Youth Leadership Program and hold leadership positions, attend statewide conferences, and represent Palmetto CAP in statewide competitions and activities.

While most services are seasonal, character education is available throughout the year through regularly-scheduled workshops and by request.
