Specifically, the Lowcountry Emerging Leaders Program will provide young leaders a platform to share their insights on how we can improve the health and well-being of local island communities in Beaufort, Colleton, Hampton, Jasper, Berkeley, and Charleston Counties, South Carolina.
For the Sea Islands Society, the goal of Lowcountry Emerging Leaders is to provide young leaders a platform to express their own ideas, opinions and suggestions on the importance that young leaders play in the Lowcountry.
Anyone interested in nominating a young leader should contact James Carroll, Managing Director of the Sea Islands Society, at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline is April 30, 2016.
About the Islands Society
The Islands Society is a “Top-Rated” American 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Its mission is to inspire and empower islanders to participate in foreign affairs and overseas engagements in order to affect positive change in their local communities. The nonprofit therefore develops and implements projects that are designed to help islanders realize their full potential on the world stage. These projects are currently organized around two main themes: community projects and next generation leaders. The community projects center on ten issue areas, including charity, conservation, democracy, disaster relief, education, equality, health, innovation, security, and sustainability. Meanwhile, the next generation leader projects support artists, athletes, chefs, incubators, musicians, policymakers, storytellers, and technologists. To implement these programs, the nonprofit has launched local constituent societies around the world. These include the Baltic Islands Society, Caribbean Islands Society, Inland Islands Society, Pacific Islands Society, Ritō Society, and Sea Islands Society.
