Where our vision is that “Every Child Wins”.
At Lowcountry Youth Services, we aim to ensure that "EVERY CHILD WINS.” That's why we offer a range of mentoring programs that provide Berkeley, Charleston, and Dorchester Counties youth with the tools and support they need to thrive. We know that life can be challenging, especially for some children. That's why our youth development and mentoring programs focus on providing positive role models and teaching essential life, social, and problem-solving skills.
Our mentoring programs are open to all young people, regardless of ethnicity, social, or economic background. We don't discriminate whether a child is a high achiever facing a problematic situation at home or a child with a history of juvenile offenses. Every child can benefit from our structured support, and we believe, every child can win if given the opportunity! If you want to join our mission, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Lowcountry Youth Services is an incredible asset to the City of Hanahan through its work with youth services through their police department. We are fortunate that they have now expanded his reach through the Exchange Program by providing additional mentoring and support services to young males with involvement in the juvenile justice system in Berkeley County.
We realized that raising 2 sons in today's world was more than we could handle on our own. When we heard about The Distinguished Gentlemen's Club, we knew this would be a great opportunity to have some Positive Male Role Models for our sons and to have these Mentors come alongside us in giving our son's the guidance they need to have a bright future.
Since Joshua has been in DGC, we have seen a tremendous change in him. He thinks before acting. He takes pride in his grades and his appearance. His grades have gone from failing to As and Bs.
I enrolled my son in DGC for him to meet people, build his self-esteem & his confidence. I also wanted my son to have male role models where he could learn how to grow and become a man of greatness in the future.
It’s a great pleasure the joy my son receives having a mentor he can talk to about anything and enjoys spending all day with. Without this group and the great mentor he has, all I can say is, I'm grateful. DGC was just what my son needed.
“Lowcountry Youth Services is a difference-maker because they use their talents and skills to not only directly serve an area of great importance but inspire others to do so as well. Lowcountry Youth Services sees in young people what in many cases they do not see themselves; talent, skills, value, and an amazing hope and enthusiasm for their future.”
I enrolled my son so he can be around positive kids. Kids whose parents want a grounded village for their child to be a part of. I enrolled him so he can see what black male excellence can do.
DGC has helped my son with manners, helping maintain personal hygiene, starting to think about the future of what he wants to do, helped him learn time management skills & most importantly become the young man he is today.
