State Tech Grant is Changing Lives

Published on August 18, 2017

State Technical College of Missouri’s MoStart grant is excited to announce a key partnership with the Lincoln County Economic Development Agency and the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office. The partnership will train offenders to successfully re-enter the community by gaining the skills necessary to gain meaningful employment.

Upon successful completion of the program, these offenders will acquire certifications such as the National Career Readiness Certificate, Microsoft Keyboarding Certificate, OSHA 10, CPR among others. These skills will allow them to successfully enter the workforce upon release. “This program will be a big boost to the workforce across the state of Missouri. Once they gain these required skills we find they are less likely to re offend. Simply put the MoStart grant with State Technical College has changed lives. I have seen it first hand,” said Nancy Wiley, MoStart Grant Manager.

State Technical College of Missouri was awarded the MoStart (Missouri Strategic Training and Retooling) grant on July of 2016. The 2.7 million dollar grant will focus on training more than 325 individuals across the state with the essential skills needed to join or rejoin the workforce.
