SLHA To Connect Residents Of Clinton Peabody To Jobs
St. Louis, MO, (SLFP.com), August 9, 2015 - The St. Louis Housing Authority (SLHA) and the St. Louis Agency on Training and Employment (SLATE) have aligned all the elements needed to fully implement a Jobs Plus Pilot program, as part of the receipt $3.0 million HUD grant.
The activities will serve 240 residents at the Clinton Peabody development, the largest and oldest SLHA facility, with 347 households and an average annual income well below the average for similar activities.
The overall goal of the program is to increase earnings and advance outcomes for public housing residents, many of them single mothers, over the next four years. SLHA was one of only nine organizations nationwide to receive a grant under Jobs Plus.
To serve these residents, Jobs Plus will provide job-training, supportive services, financial incentives and community supports to create a culture of work. SLATE is responsible for all workforce development activities as part of this partnership, providing on-site case managers, administering paid work experiences and supportive services, and filling Community Coach and volunteer Jobs Plus Ambassador positions from among the residents.
Jobs Plus also created a Technology Innovation Center within the existing Al Chappelle Community Center. IT training provider BLUE|1647 has specifically adapted their curriculum to serve both youth and adults at Clinton Peabody. At the new Center, they will be able to create real-world coding and application-building skills marketable to future employers.
The Jobs Plus program will help residents become job-ready, obtain employment, and transition to unsubsidized housing. "The involved partners know too well about the ongoing struggle underserved St. Louis communities undergo each and every day," said Michael K. Holmes, SLATE's Executive Director. "We have designed the Clinton Peabody Jobs Plus to lend a helping hand - giving residents a needed boost to enter the job market with confidence and build a solid and secure future for themselves and their children."

Great Rivers Greenway to Open Visitor's Center in Loop
O'Fallon, MO, (SLFP.com), July 26, 2015 - Great Rivers Greenway is calling on area residents who are passionate about the outdoors to become a volunteer docent at the district's new Visitor's Center, which will officially open in late September.
The Visitor's Center, located at the Great Rivers Greenways offices at 6174 Delmar Boulevard, was recently added by the organization to provide a physical space where both those who live in the St. Louis region and visitors can interactively connect to the various greenways around the region, learn about future greenway expansion plans and discover the many possibilities for outdoor recreation.
Volunteer docents are needed to staff the Visitor's Center and educate guests on the River Ring, a planned 600-mile interconnected system of greenways, parks and trails that will eventually span across St. Louis City, St. Louis County and St. Charles County.
Docents will serve as ambassadors for Great Rivers Greenway and will distribute maps and reading materials, oversee the sales of Great Rivers Greenway merchandise, provide information to visitors about our region's greenways and help them use the center's interactive touch-screen display, which will be available for guests to learn about existing and planned greenways.
The Visitor Center hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. Scheduling is flexible, however, docents are asked to make at least a four-hour commitment per week. Those chosen as volunteer docents will also receive on-the-job training and continuing education that will make them qualified to help others get to know Great Rivers Greenway and the River Ring trail system a little better.
To access an application or get more information on the position and qualifications, visit http://greatriversgreenway.org/get-involved/. Applications can be submitted electronically and must be received before noon on Wednesday, August 12.
