"Shaping Leaders of Tomorrow!"

In order to ensure physical distancing, which does not mean social disconnection, SCACAP launched its First Statewide Youth Leadership Virtual Academy. The Statewide Youth Leadership Virtual Academy is a website portal that will provide educational curriculum and resources to increase social, emotional, financial literacy, team building, academic, career and employment, and other vital skills for the youth in South Carolina. This academy will also provide top presenters to share professional development opportunities, youth forums, and networking opportunities. The Virtual Academy is safe and monitored for youth to continue their learning and relationships while they may be separated due to COVID-19. This portal is made available by designated SCACAP Staff to youth, counselors, and parents and is accessible 24/7 from any computer at any time.
