Minneapolis/St. Paul Ranks #1 in Nation for Producing AmeriCorps Members

New data shows more AmeriCorps members come from the Twin Cities than any other American city.

Minnesotans have a long history of embracing AmeriCorps programs. ”

— Audrey Suker, CEO of ServeMinnesota

MINNEAPOLIS, MN, USA, August 15, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — When it comes to enrolling in AmeriCorps, Minneapolis/St. Paul residents rank first among American cities, according to new data released today by the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), the federal agency that administers the AmeriCorps program and leads the nation’s national service and volunteer programs. Previously, the Twin Cities appeared on the list in the number two spot. The state of Minnesota ranked fifth among states for generating the most AmeriCorps members.

According to Audrey Suker, CEO of ServeMinnesota, this fall marks the 25th anniversary of AmeriCorps service to our country. “Minnesotans have a long history of embracing AmeriCorps programs. For example, Reading Corps and Math Corps are proven Minnesota programs that help students succeed in school and are replicated in 14 states and Washington, D.C.,” she said.

Suker added that there are currently service positions available. Some programs in the metro area even provide an additional housing stipend to help with expenses. AmeriCorps programs serving the Minneapolis/St. Paul area are:
• City of Lakes AmeriCorps –supporting middle school long-term English learners in developing the academic language skills they need to succeed in school.
• College Possible – bridging the opportunity gap to help low-income and first-generation high school and college students to access and succeed in higher education.
• Conservation Corps Minnesota –helping youth hone their leadership skills through natural resource management and renewable energy activities.
• CTEP – helping youth and adults use technology to access civic, educational and economic opportunities.
• Law Enforcement Career Path Academy building positive connections between the St. Paul Police Department and community while launching your law enforcement career.
• Minnesota Alliance With Youth – Promise Fellows – keeping youth engaged in learning by providing in- and out-of-school supports to 6th-12th graders at risk of dropping out.
• Minnesota GreenCorps – improving Minnesota’s environment while gaining experience and a network for your future career.
• Minnesota Math Corps -tutoring struggling 4th-8th graders to catch up to grade level in math.
• Minnesota Opportunity Corps – helping new Americans and low-income adults navigate to stable careers that pay a livable wage.
• Minnesota Reading Corps – helping students become better, more confident readers by the end of 3rd grade.
• Minnesota Recovery Corps – supporting youth and adults in sustaining their own recovery from opioid addiction.
• Total Learning Classroom – helping children in high-need schools reach their potential.
• Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity – building, rehabbing, and repairing homes in partnership with community volunteers and low-income families in the Twin Cities.

Since AmeriCorps programs were introduced to Minnesota in 1994, approximately 32,000 residents of Minnesota have given more than 52 million hours of service to their country and received more than $130.3 million in scholarships. This year, CNCS will invest more than $37 million in national service projects in the state, including funding for about 2,000 AmeriCorps members.

For more than two decades, dedicated Americans have chosen to strengthen education, prepare students for college, connect veterans to jobs, fight the opioid epidemic, preserve public lands, foster economic opportunity, and more through the national service program. Every year, 75,000 AmeriCorps members serve through 21,000+ schools, nonprofits, and community and faith-based organizations across the country.

Since the program’s inception in 1994, more than 1.1 million AmeriCorps members have served providing more than 1.6 billion hours of service and earning more than $3.6 billion in education scholarships, more than $1 billion of which has been used to pay back student debt. Those interested in joining AmeriCorps can learn more at ServeMinnesota.org.

A growing body of research shows that service has an effect on more than just the communities served, but also on the members themselves. AmeriCorps alumni credit their year of service for developing leadership skills that bridge divides, solve problems, and open doors to opportunities that advance their careers and education. In addition, research shows that alumni gain skills and are exposed to experiences that employers find valuable.

The rankings were determined by associating the permanent address of AmeriCorps members’ to a U.S. designated place and state. The analysis looked exclusively at members who served in program year 2016. A large-sized city was defined as any place with a population greater than or equal to 250,000. States and cities listed produce the highest number of AmeriCorps members per capita. The District of Columbia was considered a state for these rankings.

About ServeMinnesota
As a catalyst for positive social change, ServeMinnesota moves research to practice and deploys the people power of AmeriCorps to meet critical needs in Minnesota. It recruits and supports thousands of individuals to improve the lives of Minnesotans by offering transformative service opportunities that focus on education, affordable housing, employment, the environment, addiction recovery, and police-community relationships. Two of its innovative strategic initiatives, Minnesota Reading Corps and Minnesota Math Corps, are working to close the achievement gap and help struggling students become successful learners.

Safe Solutions Advised over Addictive, Harmful Drugs for Better Mental Health

Dr. Nedd delivering a seminar at the CCHR Florida headquarters in downtown Clearwater. He will deliver a seminar on the safe, alternatives to psychotropic medication on September 4th.

A 30-year, highly-certified health professional, Dr. Stephen Nedd delivers public seminars on multiple causes of mental health disorders and non-drug solutions.

Parents are not being told the dangers associated with these drugs. Lacking information they may too easily give permission and regret it much later.”

— Diane Stein, President CCHR Florida

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, USA, August 15, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — With mounting evidence of the addictive and harmful effects of anti-depressants and other psychiatric drugs, the Florida chapter of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) will host a free seminar on safe alternatives to psychotropic medication. The free, public seminar will be delivered by Dr. Stephen Nedd on September 4th at 6:30 pm at the CCHR Florida headquarters in downtown Clearwater.

“Our workshops are educating Floridians on everything from their rights under the mental health laws to the fact that there are hundreds of physical ailments which mimic mental health conditions,” said Diane Stein, President CCHR Florida.

Dr. Nedd, graduated in 1989 from Logan College of Chiropractic, is a Diplomate of the American Chiropractic Board of Physicians with certification for specialties such as, Applied Kinesiology, Acupuncture, Cold Laser Therapy, Physiotherapy and Clinical Nutrition. Through his training, he recognizes factors that can mimic ADD/ADHD and other mental diagnoses causing patients to be prescribed drugs for “mental” symptoms which may actually be stemming from physical causes. Using his medical expertise, Dr. Nedd recommends natural methods as alternatives to treat both physical and mental illnesses.

More than 8.5 million U.S. children are taking psychotropic medications with documented, adverse health effects, according to data from the IMS Health Vector One National Database Year 2013 [1]. This database includes evidences collected from 274,000 infants and 370,000 toddlers. Anti-anxiety, anti-depressant and ADHD drugs were prescribed and administered to 1,400 infants in 2013 according to data from the IMS Institute for Healthcare Informatics [2].

“Parents are not being told the dangers associated with these drugs,” said Stein. “Lacking information they may too easily give permission and regret it much later.”

About CCHR:

Initially established by the Church of Scientology and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Szasz in 1969, CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. It was L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology, who said in March 1969, "Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law, every week, over the ‘free world’ tortured, castrated, killed. All in the name of ‘mental health.’” For more information visit, www.cchrflorida.org

Join our goal to have hundreds of clean-up groups by next year! Join the challenge! Contact us to create your communities group page and get your clean-up group ready for next year!”

— Charles Mazzini

HOUSTON, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, August 15, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The first annual Get To The Water DAY™ took place on July 20, 2019, at Galveston beach. Hosted and organized by water-sports apparel brand Get To The Water®, the event was quite successful.

The National Holiday was created by Charles Mazzini, CEO and founder of Get To The Water®. Charles has always had a passion for protecting our waters by actively keeping them clean. He states “deep within us all, we know we are part of nature and want to do what’s best for nature.” With his continuous efforts, he has inspired others to make the conscientious decision to give back to our waters.

The day was centered around good, clean fun with family and friends. Individuals showed up from surrounding areas dressed in their GTTW DAY™ gear to partake in the first annual Get To The Water DAY™. All t-shirt profits went directly to cleanup efforts.

Volunteers were provided with trash bags, gloves, and refreshments, courtesy of Get To The Water®. Participants worked together to collect waste and dispose of it properly. From glass bottles to full-sized tires, they found and disposed of it all.

Several hours and hundreds of bags of trash later, Galveston beach looked more pristine than usual. It was truly incredible to see the difference that a few people and a few hours could make.

Get To The Water DAY™ is about more than just collecting trash. It is about raising awareness of how a simple task, such as picking up litter, can have a profound impact on our environment. Roughly 100 million people visit beaches, lakes, and rivers each year and each year, these waters become more polluted. Get To The Water DAY™ promotes and emphasizes the importance of water clean-up and the transformation it could provide for the environment.

Get To The Water® has shown that by coming together as a community, we can alter the tides, limit our waste and have a positive effect on the waters we know and love.

Eileen Terry of ETC Consulting to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

OAKVILLE, ONTARIO, CANADA, August 15, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — When someone is looking to get “unstuck”…to move forward to what they believe they want in their life, how can they get there? Even with all the information we need and the intention we will require, it doesn't mean we're going to change. So what stops us? Coaching offers a powerful, a safe space where people can begin to examine what they want and how to actually take a step towards accomplishing that dream.

Eileen Terry Consulting is a personal growth and development company specializing in executive coaching, team coaching, and consulting and individually customized seminars. ETC provides a path toward mastery of communication, emotional and social intelligence skills, all designed for to help people within organizations achieve success.

“Most of us find we need help in seeking to adjust and shift from current hard wired beliefs and behaviors that limit us. Without self-awareness, continuing personal development and support, you can’t influence extraordinary change or results,” says Terry.

Prior to establishing ETC in 2006, Terry worked for Blockbuster, where she was the only female executive vice president. Prior to that, she had spent 17 years with 7-11, and several years with Chevron. All the while learning how to influence business results through operations, marketing and supply chain expertise, founded on the principle that all great results are delivered through great people.

Following much-earned sabbatical from 30+ years in corporate life, Terry wanted to, as she says, “sharpen her saw,” advancing her skill sets in the arena of executive coaching. She was certified through the Hudson Institute of Santa Barbara, the premier international executive coaching certification program.

“When I took this time off, it was with the full-intent to return to corporate life as a COO or CEO somewhere. I simply wanted to learn some new tools,” recalls Terry. “What I discovered instead was the power of being able to help others, executives, leaders, people…create self-awareness, to create purpose, to create enhanced success in their lives.”

Terry says coaching's first access point for a client is through the generation of a deeper self-awareness. Both, about the current state the client find them self in, to imagining the future state they would like to create. What is it that we’re actually in this world to do? What is holding us back? The deeper coaching work is about designing the pathway to achieve our purpose.

“It all begins with recognizing we don't know what we don't know,” says Terry. “Some people call it blind spots. I call it ‘unconscious incompetence.’ Self-awareness gives us the choice to move toward conscious competence.”

Terry is known as “The Executive Whisperer.” She helps her clients navigate their fear of failure and the complex dynamics, especially for women, of significant senior roles.

“I work with individuals because we impact others always,” says Terry. “I've had CEOs literally moved to tears when they allow themselves to move toward competence.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Eileen Terry in an interview with Jim Masters on August 19th at 12pm EDT and with Doug Llewelyn on August 26th at 12pm EDT

Industry experts explore growing impact of medicinal cannabis at upcoming symposium in Atlanta

All Minority Female panel of cannabis experts to discuss cannabis investment opportunities in Atlanta, GA.

ATLANTA, GEORGIA, UNITED STATES, August 15, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — An all minority female panel of experts in the cannabis industry this month will discuss cannabis investment opportunities in Georgia, educating those curious about the medical cannabis industry.

From 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 20 at Upstairs Atlanta, the Georgia Cannabis Coalition will host its first Georgia Cannabis Investor Symposium. Panelists will educate the public about investment opportunities in the cannabis industry. Georgia legalized the medicinal use of cannabis with the passing of Georgia’s Hope Act approving low THC oil that went into effect July 1 along with passing the Hemp Farming Act in May.

Upstairs Atlanta is located at 525 Bishop St. NW in Atlanta.

Participants can register at bit.ly/CANNABISINVESTORS.

The panelists are:

• Dr. Nicole Garner Scott, CEO of Amount Financial Services;
• Keiko Beatie, CEO of Green Wave Relations;
• Tanganyika “Tangy” Daniel, CEO of Jayn Green;
• Antuanette Gomez, CEO of Pleasure Peaks; and
• Shanita Penny, CEO of Budding Solutions

Khadijah Adams, Vice President & COO of C E Hutton, LLC will serve as the keynote speaker.

"Disadvantages exist for minorities trying to realize their dreams and business goals in the cannabis and hemp industries. Existing stigma and challenges to realize them can appear to be without end,” Adams said. “The best way to attack these challenges is to re-educate our communities and build allies in the industry who provides support, access and insight."

A coalition of Georgia cannabis reform organizations dedicated to legalizing cannabis, the Georgia Cannabis Coalition seeks to help bridge the gap between the southern and global cannabis markets. The coalition also seeks to be a resource for those seeking medical, physical or financial advice about the legal cannabis plant.

“This event is the first of its kind with all minority women speaking about the strategic moves you can make to really get the return on investment any investor is looking for in the cannabis industry,” Georgia Cannabis Coalition board chair Tanganyika “Tangy” Daniel said. “Women make 80 percent of the decisions in the household, so it’s only fitting that they are front and center to discuss the disappointment and victories needed to navigate in the new cannabis industry.”

Our system had been out of date for years, and everyone we talked to said that it would cost well over $100,000 to replace it. Carolina Digital Phone came well under our budget.”

— Robert Moody, Assistant Superintendent at Graham County Schools

GREENSBORO, NC, UNITED STATES, August 15, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Carolina Digital Phone a leading hosted VoIP and telecommunications firm that serves businesses, government agencies, non-profit organizations, and academic institutions nationwide, is proud to announce that it has installed a state-of-the-art hosted VoIP phone system for Graham County Schools, a K–12 graded school district serving Graham County, North Carolina.

The installation included a total of 120 seats in Graham County Schools' central administrative office, and across its roster of schools including Robbinsville Elementary School, Robbinsville Middle School, Robbinsville High School, and The Academy.

Commented Chris Villa, Major Account Director at Carolina Digital Phone: "I had the pleasure of meeting Robert Moody, the Assistant Superintendent at Graham County Schools at the SC Ed Tech Conference in late 2018. We spoke at length, and shortly thereafter Robert invited us to provide an on-site demo to his team that included the organization's IT Director Myra Waldroup. For the next couple of months we stayed in contact and answered questions, and eventually we submitted a formal proposal at the end of February. We were thrilled when Robert informed us that we had won the deal, and the implementation process was a total success!"

Commented Robert Moody, Assistant Superintendent at Graham County Schools: "Our phone system had been out of date for years, and everyone we talked to said that it was going to cost us well over $100,000 to replace it — which was simply not feasible for us as a small school system with a limited budget. That is when we came across Carolina Digital Phone and everything changed. Chris Villa and her sales engineer colleagues were awesome to deal with. They were friendly and very well versed in the product, and the cost was well within our budget. We also purchased affordable IP phones, and the monthly savings will pay for them in the first year or two. The experience with Carolina Digital Phone continues to be wonderful. They came and installed everything, and worked great with our IT department. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a new phone system!"

Ron Hubbard every day for the next 3 weeks providing insight into the life of a “renaissance man.” There are thousands of human interest stories inside the life of L. Ron Hubbard – from flying gliders and planes, sailing vessels of any tonnage on any ocean, researching plants, writing best-sellers in multiple genres, traveling all over five continents, to being philosopher, founder of Scientology and friend to Humanity.

The Center provides a bright, spacious, open look at the life, legacy and feats of L. Ron Hubbard, the many Churches spread across six continents that sprang from his religious principles and the Church-sponsored humanitarian programs.

The L. Ron Hubbard display provides answers to questions such as:

· Which successful race car driver was once Mr. Hubbard’s mechanic?

· Which struggling writer from the 60’s became a best-selling author after following L. Ron Hubbard’s advice?

· What world-renowned science-fiction illustrator referred to L. Ron Hubbard as a “very important influence” in his life?

· How did L. Ron Hubbard “pay-forward” his success as a writer to present day up-and-coming talented artists?

The Center is open daily from 10am-10pm. It provides visitors an opportunity to engage on a self-guided tour of four informational displays, panels and educational videos.

To visit or to learn more about the Scientology Information Center, please contact Amber at 727-467-6966 or amber@cos.flag.org.

America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies—the Inc. 5000

We salute all of our clients and partners who have added to our successes. Also, we celebrate all other companies that join us on the Fastest Growing List for 2019!”

— Lisa Brown Alexander, President and Founding CEO, Nonprofit HR

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, August 14, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Inc. magazine today revealed that Nonprofit HR is on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies.

The 2019 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2015 and 2018. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2015. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2018. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2015 is $100,000; the minimum for 2018 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Companies on the Inc. 5000 are featured in Inc.’s September issue. They represent the top tier of the Inc. 5000, which can be found at http://www.inc.com/inc5000.
