Description Interest
The West River Watershed Youth Council was organized by Doreen Abubakar a West River Business Owner and Resident. She developed a program that would invest in youth being trained in learning activities to engage others in learning about the West River Watershed, wetlands restoration, invasive species and storm drainage and water ecology. The community youth will become educators. Our focus is to bring youth lead projects that will foster competent , capable, caring neighborhoods to become stewards of the watershed.

We hope that by engaging neighborhood youth and adults to create sustainablity, reproducible environmental improvements in their own local communities will impact the quality our watershed.

LISC has launched a new program to help connect charter school operators to experts in facilities development. Called SchoolPrint: Charter School Project Management, the program will advance development plans that deliver top-notch school facilities while also keeping dollars in the classroom. “Our goal is to protect the interests of students and teachers, and to fuel the development of schools that are assets to their communities,” noted LISC's Eva Schweitzer.

LISC Launches New Office in Upstate South Carolina

This month, LISC opened its newest metro office in Upstate South Carolina. Long-time economic development leader Julie Franklin will bring her community development expertise honed in Greenville and Spartanburg to the role of executive director of the LISC Upstate SC program. The new office will focus on comprehensive, long-term investments in affordable housing, businesses and jobs. “As a whole, the Upstate is enjoying strong growth, but not everyone has been able to participate in our economic expansion,” said Franklin. “To succeed in a globally competitive marketplace, we need to build up our local talent, strengthen our neighborhoods and fuel a broadly shared prosperity that allows everyone to thrive.”
