The Student Chamber was established to build the foundation and ethic of Innovation, Entrepreneurship, and Vibrancy in the youth of McDonald County.
It is built on amazing principles and has a Board of Directors that are known business and educational leaders within our county.
We believe that by instilling these qualities in our youth today, we will create the atmosphere for a better tomorrow.
The Student Chamber is located at 929 B S BUSINESS HWY 71, ANDERSON, MO 64831!
Each Monday through Friday, the Student Chamber will be working from 1:45pm to 3:10 pm in their office! Additionally, with the assistance of the $50,000 T-Mobile grant in 2021, they are opening a student-run and operated coffee shop in downtown Pineville, MO. in the Chamber offices located at 308 Harmon Street.
If you would like to visit us during this time, the doors will be open to the community. The students will be able to assist with Business Development Services and will work toward a direct connection between themselves and the businesses in the community.
If you believe in this concept and would like to see these students thrive, we would welcome your donation. The funds will be used to fuel our growth and to be able to give back to the community.
Complete Transparency will always be in place as to what the funds are being used for and your contributions are tax-deductible under the Student Chamber’s 501c(3) status.
The beginning steps were Tourism Growth & Becoming a Work Ready Community. Building value into our memberships was another desire of the Chamber. This began with a tourism-centered web presence and has grown to include the development of our Student Chamber.
To launch in the Fall of 2018, the Student Chamber’s objectives are to become the necessary addition to our team to keep us growing. They will be assisting with membership generation, office & clerical assistance, and fundraising. We are looking forward to partnering with our youth to keep us advancing in many other areas as well.
The student chamber will operate under the Chamber of Commerce with funding coming from contributions as well as percentages of new memberships sold by the Student Chamber. If you would like to make a donation to help fund our Student Chamber, we welcome your assistance.
