Everyday young people and families are faced with choices that determine their futures and the future of the community. These decisions range from what classes to take in school, to where to live, to what job they will choose. Many times, these choices can seem overwhelming and families need someone to come alongside and provide hope, encouragement and support.

Through Christlike volunteers, providing godly wisdom, we can help these families and therefore enrich Lexington County and beyond.

TESTIMONIAL
Angela

I am not only a tutor with the GED program, but also a proud GED graduate (2006). Each student we assist has a unique life story that has led them to our ministry. Their motivation to begin, and dedication to continue their GED with our program allows us to build a relationship with each of them-built on faith. Upon completion, we celebrate, as they are now prepared to continue their educational or career goals. I am grateful to be involved in this ministry for our community.

The Scooter Scott Project really cares about its students in and out of class. The volunteers and leaders try hard to find the best workable solution for student situations and guide them in the right direction through classes and fellowship!

While I was a part of the Scooter Scott project for 6 years, it had a huge impact on my life because it connected me to current mentors, taught me basic life skills, and motivated me to pursue goals I had for my life. As I reflected on the project’s mission: to build faith, family, and futures, I realized I found my faith in Jesus, my church family, and the courage to live the life God planned for me through this organization’s investment in me. Just as this program graciously poured into me, I now have the opportunity to teach what I have learned to those who need what I was once missing.
