Upcoming Special Programs and Events

Catholic Education

A faithful Catholic education can prepare students not only for a career, but for life. To get a taste of the value of a faithful Catholic education, high school students are encouraged to look at summer programs at the colleges recommended in The Newman Guide to Choosing a Catholic College.

These programs are a great opportunity for high school students to strengthen their academic and extracurricular skills, grow in their spiritual lives, get a head-start on college visits, learn from distinguished professors, make lifelong friends, and experience what faithful Catholic education is all about.


This is a very comprehensive list to find out whether the college/s you are interested in are offering any sort of virtual tours, experiences, etc.  Check it out

Let There Be Mom is excited to continue our Student Ambassador program in the 2021-2022 school year.    Our goal is to equip students to be stable branches of our organization within their schools.  They will be responsible for spreading the word about our mission, our volunteer opportunities, and our upcoming events.  Students will engage with local leaders within our community to learn valuable skills that will help them not only through this process, but also within their lives.

Up to 20 local high school juniors and/or seniors may be selected to participate in the program (no more than two representatives from the same school). Students will be expected to attend meetings (typically in the evening, on the 3rd Tuesday of each month) throughout the school year and will have the opportunity to serve as lead volunteers during events.    The program will not be all work – expect to have some fun!

How to Apply

Rising high school Juniors and Seniors in the Upstate of SC who attend a public or private school are eligible.  Students must complete the online application, have a recommendation form submitted on their behalf, have approval from school, & participate in an in person interview.  Please have your resume and transcript available as an upload before beginning your on-line application.  Applications will be accepted through May 31, 2021.
