On this Impact, a summer camp for children who can’t speak helps give them a voice during their acting debut. Students are shying away from Math and Science studies in school, but now a program at the St. Louis Science Center has them saying YES to STEM. The man behind one of the country’s most popular websites is helping young tech start-ups get up and going. Did you know it’s legal in Missouri to own exotic big cats. While many end up abused or abandoned a local sanctuary is now offering these cats a peaceful place to live their lives. Plus, meet a man with a simple act of kindness that is sweeping across the country and getting kids back on the basketball court.

Impact is living up to its name by highlighting people, companies, and organizations making the commitment to find innovative ways to improve the quality of life for others. These are the good news stories from our own community that will focus on those making a difference in someone's life, whether that's in their neighborhood, community or around the world.
