Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Missouri, as follows:
Section A. Chapter 105, RSMo, is amended by adding thereto one new section, to be known as section 105.1230, to read as follows:
105.1230. 1. On and after January 1, 2001, each full-time employee in a permanent position in the state service who has worked at least one full calendar year shall be granted one week of additional annual vacation, with pay, based upon their normal work schedule for at least one hundred twenty hours within a calendar year of participation in a volunteer mentoring program for children. The year period shall be measured annually from January first of each year. The volunteer mentoring program shall provide a list to the state of the employees who are certified as eligible under this program within one month of full acceptance into the program and shall certify to the state the names of the employees who have completed a year of full participation in the program as a volunteer mentor. If such an employee does not participate in the full hourly requirements during the calendar year or does not satisfy the program's regular time commitments, no additional vacation time shall be granted. The decision to grant the additional vacation time shall be subject to approval by the office of administration and shall not be subject to appeal under chapter 536, RSMo.
2. The volunteer mentoring program shall be totally responsible for all elements of its program. No activities performed by state employees with the volunteer mentoring program shall be on state time and such activities shall be outside of the scope of their employment.
