Project STELLAR- Attend an Event in your Community!

Missouri’s Regional Transition Networks (RTN) are groups of individuals who have a vested interest in the success of youth with disabilities transitioning from high school. These teams work together to plan FREE events, throughout the state, aimed at teaching employment skills and providing information on resources available to them. RTN team events are a tool that educators and families can use to help the student achieve their goals. Find an event in your area!

MPACT Mentor Volunteer Program
What is an MPACT Mentor Volunteer?
Mentors are trained volunteers who, upon request, provide support to families of children with disabilities throughout the special education process. A mentor does not represent or speak for a parent or family member, but a mentor does help empower an individual to become a strong educational advocate for his or her child. MPACT mentors are screened and receive training and supervision from MPACT staff.


Free Special Education Workshops
 Does your child have a disability, struggle with learning, behavior, or social issues at school, or currently receive special education services? If so, Missouri Parents Act (MPACT) may be able to help. MPACT is a federally-funded, statewide Parent Training and Information Center. MPACT offers families free training, resources, and support throughout the special education process.
