Project Overview

Historically, far too many students did not graduate High School on time and with a diploma.  Why?  It is not because they are not smart enough.  It is usually because "life" got in the way.  It is hard to focus on learning when you're cold or hungry.  It is hard to learn when the kids around you make fun of you.  Even though it may not be your fault, you can find yourself distracted by life's real issues, everyday. 

That's where Bright Futures Joplin can help! 

Bright Futures Joplin stands ready to help a student that has a need.  Joplin Schools has a unique perspective as all of these students must come to get an education.  They come even when the are cold, hungry or ridiculed.  Joplin Schools staff does all they can, many times going the extra mile!  But, Bright Futures Joplin believes that the resources to make a difference are right here in the community.  We know that many of you stand ready to help, but don't know where or how.  Bright Futres Joplin wants to be your connection to meet the needs that exist.

Your gift, no matter the size, goes straight to help students!  

Joplin Schools pays for the person to oversee the programming and provides offices and storage space.  That means all the money that is donated to Bright Futures Joplin can go directly to meet the needs of Joplin Students.  

Won't you help us change a student's trajectory by giving right now, so we can remove some of the "life" which get's in the way?
