Representatives of the Rotary Club of Daniel Island met with Trident Technical College officials Sept. 26 to present a check for $30,000 to support students in the Charleston Regional Youth Apprenticeship program. The donation will be used to cover the cost of tuition, college books and other materials needed by student apprentices, ensuring that all students have an equal opportunity to participate in the program, regardless of their family’s financial situation. Students in the apprenticeship program take both high school and apprenticeship-related college classes while working at their sponsor companies, which offer paid, on-the-job work experience. Students graduate with a high school diploma, a Trident Tech certificate, two years of work experience, and a nationally recognized U.S. Department of Labor journeymen credential.
