Young adults are making important decisions about work, family and where to live. CEAM wants to reach young adults with valuable information and meaningful opportunities to get involved. Every year our Young Friends for Educational Progress hosts a trivia night to help reach more young adults! We also get together quarterly for a happy hour and other events. Come meet new people who are also engaged in education reform in Missouri.
We encourage our Young Friends to learn more about education reform with us and engage in the conversation about our local education system.
Meet the Faces of Young Friends for Educational Progress
I am Gulcan Yayla. I studied at the Brown School of Social Work and did my internship at CEAM. I am also a member of Young Friends for Educational Progress.
What do we do as Young Friends of CEAM? The answer does not have a limit. We can use any opportunity to learn about education policies in Missouri. We have meetings to discuss education policies, but we don’t have to wait for an event to be organized by CEAM – we can organize the events ourselves and invite others. We can also choose to attend a community service together, in this way we learn better.

My name is Sara Feagans and I am a member of CEAM’s Young Friends for Educational Progress because I feel that all students should have access to a quality education regardless of where they live or the income of their families.
