We are expanding our reach to meet the next need: a form of our Job & Leadership Training, for women.

We're piloting a program called SkillUP through ARCHS, a community & human services nonprofit. ARCHS is providing funding and infrastructure-- a program model that we are fleshing out and building upon. Our first class began April 8th.

So, in the big picture, we are asking you to donate to workforce development-- giving opportunity to someone who might not have the resources and relationships at hand to get a job. On a practical scale, what does that look like?

Your $10 donation to Mission: St. Louis? That looks a lot like a woman pulling out the pass she got from Mission: St. Louis as she boards the bus for her first job interview.

Your $25 donation to Mission: St. Louis? The moment that woman looked at herself in the mirror before she walked out the door for the interview, wearing a business casual blouse, confident she is the woman for the job.

We thank you in advance for joining in on the movement to help more women enter the St. Louis workforce.



As we continue to expand, we need your help TODAY for Give STL Day!
