The Hendrick Automotive Group of Charleston/North Charleston, one of the largest automotive dealership groups in the region, will participate in the Charleston Metro Chamber’s Youth Apprentice program.
The program, developed in collaboration with Trident Technical College and Apprenticeship Carolina, allows high school juniors and seniors to take on apprenticeships at certain Hendrick dealerships. The students will simultaneously attend Trident Tech and complete high school.
“The program is an incredible opportunity for young students wanting to pursue a rewarding career as an automotive technician,” Hendrick Community Relations Specialist Brad Davis said in a statement. “Through the support of the Chamber’s Accelerate Greater Charleston program, student’s tuition, books and tools are covered by businesses like ours that contribute to the chamber program.”
The Hendrick dealerships involved in the program are Rick Hendrick Chevrolet, Rick Hendrick Dodge Chrysler Jeep RAM, Hendrick Honda of Charleston, Hendrick Hyundai, Hendrick Hyundai North, Rick Hendrick BMW Charleston, MINI of Charleston, Volvo of Charleston, Rick Hendrick Jeep Chrysler Dodge RAM, Rick Hendrick FIAT of North Charleston, Hendrick Lexus of Charleston, and Hendrick Toyota Scion North Charleston.
