Freshwater Coast Center for Rural Development


The Freshwater Coast Center for Rural Development was created by a partnership among several organizations including the Freshwater Coast Community Foundation, the West Carolina Rural Telephone Cooperative and Clemson Extension. It is changing rural communities in South Carolina with a vibrant and entrepreneurial spirit.

We have implemented this new economic development model by establishing structured mentorship/apprenticeship opportunities for undergraduate students; by bringing prospective entrepreneurs for lectures and mentoring; by creating new, and expanding upon existing, strategic relationships with municipalities for rural development and workforce development; and by leading the Freshwater Coast exploration of a continuing education program at the local community college that integrates business innovation and entrepreneurial learning for mid-career entrepreneurs and local leaders.
