Youth Education & Development
Assuring 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 priorities in this issue area include:
- Develop a landscape of Missouri’s workforce development eco-system to explore actors involved, possible gaps and potential opportunities.
- Include afterschool, summer learning and other wraparound services in the newest iteration of the Missouri School Improvement Plan (MSIP).
- Enact “Visiting Scholars” legislation, which allows workforce professionals the opportunity to obtain teaching certification through an alternative process.
