      EDUCATION


    Goal: Helping children and youth achieve their potential

 
A good education is the start for a good quality of life. Education provides the means to get a good job with enough income to support a family and save for retirement, and it also allows people to make better choices and improve their health. We know that education is a driver of success later in life. That's why we make improving education for all of our children a priority. and that's why we are proud to work with Graduation Matters Missoula, helping our students graduate from ghigh school ready for college or career training, and ready for success in life.graduationmattersmissoula.com/

 

Recently, we met with 30 local business and nonprofit leaders to discuss a Campaign for Grade-Level Reading. Working in collaboration across our community, we are moving forward to develop a plan for our community that aligns with national best practices. To become a part of this effort, or if you have questions, please email our community relations manager Stacy Rye.

To achieve our goal, we:

  • Foster children’s physical, emotional, social, and intellectual growth
  • Support effective strategies to improve graduation rates
  • Provide after-school and mentoring activities for at-risk youth
