About Us

The Antioch Educational Center completed its 17thyear as a nonprofit organization in Jasper County. Without question, during 2018, AEC served more of Jasper County residents than any other nonprofit in Jasper County, South Carolina. This made AEC the largest nonprofit organization in Jasper County that serves low income residents.


AEC Staffing

During 2018, Antioch Educational Center (AEC) had a small administrative staff in the form of a full time Executive Director and a part-time (25 hours a week) Administrative Assistant. In October of 2018, AEC also hired its first part-time (20 hours a week) Legal Assistant to assist with a new expungement program funded by the South Carolina Bar Foundation.

In the form of support staffing, AEC has a full-time Communications Receptionist to answer AEC’s many, many phone calls received annually. AEC also has a part-time bookkeeper who does payroll and payroll taxes.

For its programs, AEC also hired its regular seasonal (summer months) Summer Youth Work Program (SYWP) Administrator. In December of 2018, AEC took on its first full time Literacy Coach to assist with the training and implementation of Peeka into the Jasper County School District (JCSD). AEC continues to have a Registered Nurse on staff to teach its Nursing Assistant Program.

In addition to the regular staff, AEC continues to attract dedicated volunteers who choose to help on a one-time project or continue their valuable contribution of time throughout the year. During 2018, AEC benefitted from 191 regular volunteers and 39 one-time (specific) project volunteers.
