A non-profit dedicated to creating a stronger workforce for Southeast Missouri.
The Missouri Department of Higher Education & Workforce Development (MDHEWD) has launched the Return Strong initiative aimed at strengthening Missouri’s Workforce as it bounces back from the economic impacts of COIVD-19. The Return Strong initiative was devised to achieve two main goals: to help Missourians skill up and get back to work, and to reopen Missouri’s public workforce system safely and responsibly.
Missourians are strong, resilient and ready to get back to business. The backbone of a healthy economic recovery depends on everyone’s willingness to help control the spread of COVID-19. The Show Me Strong Pledge is a voluntary commitment to take a few simple steps that will aid in protecting the well-being of all Missourians.
