"St. Louis for Kids provides many programs and services that aim to improve the quality of life for youth," said Rose Anderson-Rice, Executive Director. "We are the only organization in the region solely focused on out-of-school time programs making sure that the time young people spend in these settings is the highest-quality possible."
Through its many programs, St. Louis for Kids' vision is for every child who needs it will have access to a safe, high-quality program during non-school hours.
"The impact St. Louis for Kids has is so important. Children in our community need and deserve well-trained, caring adults who have the skills, knowledge, and abilities to engage them and inspire them to achieve in life and grow to be productive citizens," Anderson-Rice said. "We help cultivate those skills in adults so that they can better serve the children in our community. We share best practice methods and work along side program staff building off their strengths."
