Dear Cristian,

Today, we kick off a program that will help support  our local workforce.
 
The chamber has joined business leaders, Technical College of the Lowcountry, and the Beaufort Regional Chamber of Commerce to mark the expansion of Apprenticeship SC programs in Beaufort County.
 
Apprenticeship SC - a division of the South Carolina Technical College System - is a statewide program that combines education and on-the-job training. It helps build a skilled workforce, retains youth and talent locally, and provides businesses tax credits. It’s a win-win-win for students, employers, and the region.
 
A few of our members, including Hudson’s Seafood House on the Docks and Right At Home, are already a part of the program and have had great success with it.
 
Any industry can benefit from an apprenticeship program, especially the hospitality and healthcare industries, and we encourage our local businesses to put apprenticeship programs in place, and for our local high school and college students to participate.
 
You can click here to listen to our podcast with our local Apprenticeship SC Coordinator Nicole Bentley, or if you are interested in offering an apprenticeship, reach out to our Vice President of Public Policy & Programs Hannah Horne at hhorne@hiltonheadisland.org.


Sincerely,




Bill Miles,
President & CEO
Hilton Head Island-Bluffton Chamber of Commerce
