The Children’s Grove mission is to inspire kindness and civility and to support the mental and emotional well-being of our youth.  We want to foster a culture of mutual respect, meaningful inclusivity, and sincere compassion. 

Success of the Children’s Grove endeavors depends on building a shared vision — of parents, neighbors, teachers, youth/service groups and faith-based leaders, school volunteers and business people all joining together in a firm commitment to support the safety and nurturing of our youth and young adults. This vision and commitment motivates us all to act upon the belief that "a single act of kindness can change a life forever" — because it can, at the Children’s Grove and everywhere.

Missouri Business Alert is a digital newsroom with a dual mission: Train tomorrow's business journalists in the latest reporting methods and technologies while providing the top business news across the state of Missouri.

Housed in the University of Missouri School of Journalism, Missouri Business Alert is run by professionals and staffed by students. It is one of seven professional news outlets and two strategic communication agencies at the School where students practice what they’ve learned in the classroom.
