Teddy Thompson, Junior at Hilton Head High School, First Youth Apprentice in Beaufort County
Teddy spent his first month in the kitchen learning how to do prep work and then was able to move behind the hot line last month. “It’s been a lot of fun. I’m really looking forward to learning as much as I can.”

Chef Charles Pejeau, Mentor Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort
"If you have a need for employees at a beginning level it is the perfect opportunity. You get someone that's local and ideally they are going to have a great work ethic like Teddy does, show up when scheduled, be communicative and responsive.

Having Teddy on the team has been great. Everyone is contributing to his growth in their own way and that’s awesome to see. We’re just so excited to be a part of his journey.”
