Bright Futures Harrisonville strives to help students achieve success by matching student needs with resources through partnerships between the schools and the community. Partners are asked to share their "time, talent, and treasure" to help children.
Those partnership areas include:
- Parents and volunteers
- Social/human services
The Bright Futures initiative goals are to have students become productive and self-sustaining citizens, loving parents, responsible neighbors, and outstanding employees by:
- Building relationships
- Providing for individual needs
- Ensuring every child has the tools they need to be successful students
Through its organizational structure, Bright Futures provides a framework for expanding current programs such as the “Food 4 Thought” backpack program, “Stuff the Bus” school supply drive, and “Station 42”, as well as initiating new programs to support students.
Bright Futures strives to meet individual student's basic needs using Facebook as a rapid response system. The goal is to meet any student's need within 24 hours.

Bright Futures Councils at each school should include representatives from each of the partnership areas and will meet regularly with school personnel to assess and develop plans to meet the needs of the school and its students.
