Youth Education & Development

ensuring all Missouri youth have access to quality education and out-of-school supports and opportunities so that they are prepared to succeed in life and ready to positively contribute to our state.

Kids Win Missouri’s 2020 priorities in this issue area include:

  • Support initiatives that encourage partnerships between schools, businesses and other programs to prepare youth for college and career.
  • Support initiatives designed to uplift at-risk students, with a preference toward evidence-based programs. These initiatives could include children or youth with special needs, children or youth impacted by trauma or homelessness, among others.
  • Intentionally gather the players in the wraparound services space to identify gaps, barriers, inefficiencies, and effective involvement with governmental agencies.
