* The Chamber presented the county events at the Fort Leonard Wood Community Forum meeting this week. If you have an upcoming event be sure to let us know so we can promote it to our membership and at this event each month.

Interviewing booths will be available for on-site employee/employer interviews.

This event will take place Thursday, August 27, 2015 at The ARK Community and Sports Center from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. with set up from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.

Become a CHOICES Presenter - CHOICES Program Training

The Waynesville-St. Robert Chamber and the Rotary Club of Pulaski County will be continuing their partnership to present the CHOICES Program to all 8th grades in the county this fall. Thank you for volunteering to participate in this program. If you would please email or call with the training date you can attend, it would be appreciated.

The Training this year will be on August 25th from 1:00 - 4 p.m. and August 26th from 9:00 a.m. - Noon at the Chamber office in the Tourism meeting room (lower level). Everyone must attend the training even if you have presented before! Thanks again for your continue support of this outstanding program for our youth.

The success of this project can be summed up best in the words of a student after completing the CHOICES presentation, "It (self-discipline) means pushing myself to do the right thing even if it's hard." By focusing on real world topics such as time management, job opportunities, self-discipline, and staying in school CHOICES drives home the lessons that are so often overlooked.

If you would like to get involved as either a presenter or a donor please contact the Chamber office at 573-336-5121.

Waynesville Schools Receive $480,569 AmeriCorps Grant

More than 75 AmeriCorps members will serve the Waynesville R-VI School District and local community through a grant from the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS).

The Waynesville R-VI District will receive $480,569 that will provide up to 77 full- and part-time AmeriCorps Members who will spend a year serving pre-kindergarten through 12th grade students. AmeriCorps members will provide tutoring support during the school day, mentoring support during the Club TIGER after school program and support the coordination of volunteers to assist students throughout the district.

"We are delighted to again have this substantial investment in our community through the AmeriCorps program," says Dr. Kim Hawk, the district's community resource coordinator. "We appreciate the decision of the Missouri Community Service Commission to provide Waynesville students with the support of AmeriCorps tutors and mentors. Our students are the true beneficiaries of these individuals who dedicate a year of their life to serving others."

The Waynesville R-VI School District was one of just 21 Missouri organizations throughout the state to receive the funding. Gov. Jay Nixon announced that a total of $4,209,544 through the CNCS has been made available for fiscal year 2015 to encourage service in the 21 communities.

Throughout the state, the funding will support 802 AmeriCorps Members, individuals who commit to a year of civil service, throughout Missouri to tackle critical challenges including tutoring and mentoring youth, assisting veterans and military families, facilitating health education programs, preserving our state's natural resources through environmental stewardship projects, and helping communities respond to and recover from disasters.

"Volunteering our time and talents builds character while meeting critical challenges in our communities," said Gov. Nixon. "These AmeriCorps Members will help strengthen communities as they develop civic and leadership skills to last a lifetime. I congratulate these outstanding organizations and thank all those who serve their communities through AmeriCorps."

"AmeriCorps Members make a powerful impact on the toughest challenges facing our nation," said CNCS CEO Wendy Spencer. "Building on Missouri's strong tradition of neighbor helping neighbor, AmeriCorps Members will improve lives and strengthen communities across the state. As they serve others, AmeriCorps Members will also expand opportunities for themselves - gaining skills and experience to jumpstart their careers."

Of the total funding, the CNCS awarded $325,228 to the Boys Hope Girls Hope multi-state program to create up to 31 additional AmeriCorps positions in Bridgeton. Additionally, the CNCS awarded $1,834,221 to the following four Missouri nonprofit organizations and public agencies across the state to serve and strengthen their communities:
Organization Location Member Positions Funds Awarded

AmeriCorps State Competitive Programs:
-AmeriCorps St. Louis Safety Service Corps St. Louis 35 $439,652.50

-Missouri College Advising Corps Columbia/Statewide 40 $524,000.00
-Waynesville R-VI School District Waynesville 77 $480,569.00

The remaining $2,104,772 was awarded by the Missouri Community Service Commission to support additional AmeriCorps grants for the following 16 organizations in Missouri:

AmeriCorps State Formula Programs:
-A Million Stars, dba College Bound St. Louis 23 $299,997.00

-The Literacy Lab Kansas City 23 $134,733.00
-YMCA of Greater Kansas City Kansas City 6 $66,957.00

The current year's AmeriCorps grant cycle was highly competitive, due to the strong demand by organizations seeking AmeriCorps resources. The 2015 competition prioritized investments in economic opportunity, education, veterans and military families and disaster services.

AmeriCorps engages more than 75,000 Members in intensive service annually to serve through nonprofit, faith-based and community organizations at 25,000 locations across the country. These members help communities tackle pressing problems while mobilizing millions of volunteers for the organizations they serve. After completing a full term of service, AmeriCorps Members receive an award of $5,730 that can be used to pay for college or qualified student loans.

Since 1994, more than 830,000 Americans have provided more than 1 billion hours of service addressing critical challenges from poverty and hunger to disasters and the dropout crisis.

*Please note that a substantial portion of this comes from the July 20 news release issued by Gov. Jay Nixon's office
