The Diocese of Upper South Carolina seeks "To Know, Grow, and Sow the Love of Christ" among youth through events offered for young people in grades 5-12. Diocesan events are held in various locations and are open to all youth and their friends. Each of these events, while focused on a specific age group and theme or program, is designed to deepen the spiritual development and the leadership skills of the participants. All youth events are designed and led by youth with adult supervision and clergy input. Churches sending youth to in-person events are required to provide Safeguarding-trained chaperones for all retreats (except Happening, where adults are selected by the Steering Committee); background checks are required for new volunteers.
