On September 25th, the Columbia College Center for Leadership and Social Change introduced the newest P.L.A.C.E Fellows. P.L.A.C.E.  is short for Philanthropy Leadership And Community Engagement and is an ongoing partnership between the nonprofit Sisters of Charity Foundation and Columbia College.

Rachell Harglerode, one of the new members, said she “felt great to be a part of something that lets you see the world through a different perspective.” When Harglerode found out that she had been accepted into the program, she was eager to be involved. “I always wanted to be a part of an organization whose mission is not to go in and help people but to be a part of their story and become a tighter community while doing good for others.”

P.L.A.C.E. Fellows at a recent meeting at Riverwalk in West Columbia, where they talked about projects and upcoming events.

Applicants go through a competitive process including an interview. They must be “highly motivated” in order to become a Fellow. Carol Horton, another new member, said that she was “very excited when I got the call from the school.”

The program is designed to increase a student’s awareness of the impact of philanthropy on community non-profits. P.L.A.C.E. Fellows develop and polish leadership skills and are given  the opportunity to develop a servant-leadership mentally. According to the Sisters of Charity Foundation of South Carolina website, P.L.A.C.E. is also intended “to create a comprehensive understanding of complex community issues, to develop program and policy leadership to impact change and to make a commitment to statewide education, and to collaborate through an annual Summit organized by the P.L.A.C.E. Fellows.” Fellows also attend local and national conferences.
