Serving our youth
Across Missouri, the UM System is dedicated to improving communities and empowering tomorrow’s leaders. Young people are the future, and we’re ensuring they have the support needed to achieve their goals. That’s what makes this year’s UM System Extension and Engagement Week theme “All Things Youth” so important. We will focus on Missouri’s next generation and how to help them thrive, including a keynote from 2021 TIME Kid of the Year Orion Jean to headline the week. I hope to see you there.
