ARCHS and the University of Missouri-St. Louis (UMSL) College of Education (COE) have launched a new partnership that will provide UMSL COE students with the opportunity to secure part-time employment at an After School for All Partnership (ASAP) program site during the 2014-2015 school year.

At the ASAP Employment Resource Fair on April 28, 2014, UMSL COE students networked with ASAP's six providers that serve more than 2,300 students at 29 after school locations. By working at an ASAP program, instead of a traditional part time job in retail or food service, UMSL COE students will gain real life career and educational experience. ASAP's program staffs, students, and parents will benefit from the students' coursework at UMSL COE related to best practices in early childhood and K-12 education.
