Staff Report From Columbia CEO

Thursday, February 7th, 2019

As part of the Leadership Columbia program, each class choses a project that makes an impact in the community. This year, after receiving RFPs from 10 non-profit organizations in the greater Columbia area, the LC Class of 2019 has chosen a project that benefits the Babcock Center. The project will be beautification enhancements to their primary job training facility and strategic enhancements to their marketing to expand their footprint in the Midlands’ workforce.

In an effort to increase awareness of the Babcock Center’s mission to empower people with lifelong disabilities by encouraging community involvement, learning new skills and finding employment, the Leadership Columbia Class of 2019 is working on a beautification and branding project surrounding the organization’s Shop Road location. Through physical enhancements to both the interior and exterior of their primary job training facility, as well as equipping their team with effective marketing/PR strategy, the LC class strives to spread the Babcock Center’s message throughout our community, thus expanding their footprint in the greater Columbia area workforce and promoting inclusivity.
