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).
  • Support allowing workforce professionals the opportunity to obtain teaching certification through an alternative process.
