The Opportunities in a Professional Education Network (OPEN) Initiative is a career development initiative that administers projects designed to support an integrated and seamless career development system for Missouri's early childhood, afterschool, and youth development professionals. All of OPEN's projects fall into three key areas: standards development, workforce data collection, and quality assurance. Currently, OPEN staff members are working closely with other key early childhood, afterschool, and youth development partners across the state on the Missouri Professional Development Registry, the Toolbox, the MO Professional Development Portal, and the Core Competencies.
