In support of this mission, SVP Charleston invested in Metanoia from 2013-2014 and again from 2016-2017 — for a total investment of $135,000.
According to Metanoia leaders, SVP Charleston’s greatest impact was with its youth-serving programs that inspired them to take leadership roles in their community.
SVP Charleston helped develop and implement an original entrepreneurship curriculum that targeted the youngest of Metanoia’s Civic Leaders from sixth through 12th grade.
The curriculum allowed students to progressively develop a deeper understanding of how small businesses work while simultaneously fostering an interest in entrepreneurship. SVP Charleston Partners ran weekly, individualized sessions for the students.
For students at the next stage of the Youth Leadership pipeline, SVP Charleston helped inspire the creation of the Metanoia Fellows Program, which allowed Metanoia to train leaders in community organization, transformational leadership, fundraising and organizational development.
In addition to more than 200 hours of intellectual capital invested in these programs, SVP provided financial capital that helped Metanoia move into a new Youth Entrepreneurship and Volunteer Center.
