Mission Statement

We use behavioral science to create equal opportunities and meaningful change for children, families, and communities. Our main program, SupportED, is a truancy diversion program in Douglas County, KS. SupportED advances educational equity by infusing evidence-based interventions in the community at no cost to the family or school. We keep young people out of court and in school engaged in learning. Our vision is to create a world where all children and youth receive the care, support, guidance, and education they need to truly thrive in this world. Join our team!


SupportED has been helping Douglas County students since 1979! We use evidence-based practices to keep students from becoming truant and truant students from becoming delinquent by engaging and re-engaging them in school; pairing them with caring adult mentors; teaching them skills for school, interpersonal, and life success; and providing services based on their individual and family needs. We keep kids and families out of the court system and on a positive pathway toward success. We partner with Criminal Justice Services, the District Court, the District Attorney’s Office, the Department for Children and Families, 32 public schools, the University of Kansas, and we hope to partner with YOU! With the help of dedicated and passionate volunteers, we can empower the youth of today for a better tomorrow.
