  • Summer 2019 Explorer Post Summer 2019 Explorer Post

    We are thrilled to announce that this summer we will be sponsoring two teams for the NASA ANGLeS Challenge program as part of the launch of our Explorer’s Post. Participants will focus on exploring exciting activities and one-on-one mentorship from April through July of 2019.

    The Apollo Next Giant Leap Student (ANGLeS) Challenge is a national challenge celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission. Students will have the opportunity to recreate the landing using drones and robots.

    Each team will have five students per team with two alternates for a total of fourteen positions available. The two teams will meet weekly to work on the challenge on days and times that will be most convenient for the entire team. Every effort will be made in scheduling to maximize participation.

     

    All interested candidates should fill out the application and return it to Andrea@SeattleSouthsideChamber.com by April 10th at midnight.

    All applications will be reviewed by committee. Special consideration will be given to those students that can include a letter of recommendation from a teacher and who come from underrepresented and underserved communities. Middle school through high school students are encouraged to apply.

  • In December of 2017 the Chamber established and filed for 501 c 3 status with the IRS and the State of Washington.

    The Success Foundation was created to be a charitable enterprise of the Chamber, dedicated to the success of our region in Southwest King County.  The Foundation promotes and improves the economic development opportunities of our region and it’s communities by participating in education, workforce and community engagement and development projects and research.

    Success means a lot of different things to different people. For the Chamber, and our new charitable enterprise, it means that the people that live, work and enjoy the businesses, communities and amenities in Southwest King County are supported, encouraged and invited to create and define their own success stories. Our community should be recognized as the place where businesses, residents and community partners are able to live out their best lives. With poverty rates in our community exceeding the state average, we know we have our work cut out for us as we focus on raising the tide for all in our region. We also know that we can’t do this work alone, and we need your help.

  • A few of the projects the Success Foundation is actively working on now to improve our community:

    1. Regional Workforce Coalition Facilitating STEM education at all levels of Secondary Education in the region, Success Foundation plans to provide structural support for clubs and classrooms, paid internships, and mentorship programs to assist in student retention, and to curb the current and future workforce shortages.

    2. Community Events and Workshops:  Success Foundation is planning its annual “State of our Schools” event.  This and other events will strengthen the bond between businesses and their respective communities. We will also reveal more about our Workforce Coalition at our State of Our Schools Luncheon on April 26th. You can see this event in our event calendar.

    3. Change for Success:  Partnering with Chamber Members, the Foundation plans to encourage donations to fight the root causes of housing instability within our region and other key issues affecting our various communities’ quality of life. We have also added a “resource” section to our website to better help facilitate access to these resources.
