PREP-KC Academy Alumni Outreach Facilitator

Posted: 10/09/2019

PREP-KC was founded in 2005 as Kansas City’s leading urban education intermediary. Its’ mission is to increase college-readiness and access to high-quality employment for nearly 50,000 mostly low-income students served by six of Kansas City’s bi-state urban school districts and four charter schools.  PREP-KC Career Academy students receive intensive postsecondary preparation that integrates a stackable set of college courses, career-readiness credentials/certificates, and project-based experiences into the high school course-of-study.  The student experience is customized based on their college and career goals. The support received in a Career Academy engages students in real-world learning and equips them to earn Market Value Assets (MVAs). MVAs are defined as industry-valued and recognized skills acquired in high school that create a more seamless transition from school to postsecondary education and/or the workplace. Student experiences that provide a significant scope of real-world problem-solving, communication and collaboration with people beyond the school walls are essential drivers of MVAs.
