Georgetown RISE Youth Corps



The CCU United Nations Centre for Expertise on Education for Sustainable Development – Georgetown will support a scientific/research-based perspective, while engaging a place for productive dialog and collaboration on sustainability, enable a process for incubating student engagement and cultivating professional talent, and encourage participation and outreach related to sustainable development as a way of thinking and acting.


Our 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 17 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.
