Youth Ready to Enter Productive Adulthood
The Youth Ready to Enter Productive Adulthood Committee is interested in improving the graduation rates, post secondary education and training for Butler County schools. Youth will take an array of interventions in order to be effective in achieving our objectives. The array of strategies must include programs for the general student population as well as specific programs for various segments of at-risk students. The objectives can only be achieved by continuing to improve collaboration between school districts, and social service agencies. Partners included Three Rivers College, Poplar Bluff School District, and higher education and vocational training institutes, Teen Parent Mentoring Program, Adult Education and Literacy, and youth activities of the Poplar Bluff Municipal Library District.
