Business Information
You might not realize it, but every time you take a yoga class at the local studio, buy a gift from the local artist down the street, or make a purchase from the local furniture store, you are shopping small and making a difference. For every dollar spent at a small business in the U.S., approximately 67 cents stays in the local community. (Estimate from data on businesses with under 100 employees, as reported in Amex-commissioned 2018 Small Business Economic Impact Study, When you Shop Small on Small Business Saturday, and throughout the year, it can add up to a big impact.

If you are in need of a service, particular item, or place to visit for a special occasion and are not sure where to turn, that is one of the reasons we are here; to be a resource for you to locate what you need, as locally as possible.

We encourage you to visit the locally-owned shops and restaurants and explore the locally-owned and operated service providers. You may find a new favorite among them. I know I have.
Does your business have hiring challenges?
Do you want to help build our workforce?
Do you have a passion for helping young people?

If your answer is yes, then join us on Tuesday, November 30!

The South Carolina Commission for Minority Affairs and Apprenticeship Carolina will host an informational session on the Registered Apprenticeship program (RAPs) on Tuesday, November 30 at 2 p.m. via Zoom.

An apprenticeship is a time-tested method of employee development that combines supervised on-the-job learning and job-related education along with a scalable wage. Registered apprenticeship programs ensure that South Carolina's workforce has the skills needed to match today's in-demand jobs and jobs of the future. 

Apprenticeships also provide a promising career pathway for participating apprentices who gain experience and the skills needed for the well-paying jobs that grow the state's economy.
