Chamber News: What is the Chamber Foundation and What Can You Do to Help?

Posted May 14, 2017    

Thanks to a variety of programs sponsored by the South Baldwin Chamber Foundation, our students benefit from encouragement and support from the entire community.

Let’s take a look at some of these programs supported by the foundation.

Project ACEd is “designed to give students the enrichment experiences they need to realize that upward mobility is possible and they can increase their economic stability.” It serves as the umbrella for:

Young Entrepreneurs Academy – This 30-week program takes students from ideas and research to business development to launch, making middle and high school students into business owners and CEOs.

Junior Ambassadors – High school juniors develop leadership and problem-solving skills through real-world experiences with lawmakers, governmental agencies and local industry leaders.

Bridges to Success – Counselors and peer helpers are designated for the school year to help 7th- and 9th-grade students adjust to their new learning environment. Students perform better when comfortable in their surroundings.

Teacher Student Grants is another way the Chamber Foundation provides assistance, either through teacher or student application. These funds may go toward continuance of current programs as well as new undertakings.

How can you be even more involved in helping our next generations become successful individuals?

Share your time, talents and skills, information and/or resources. The folks associated with the South Baldwin Chamber Foundation are eager to hear from you
