Ready by 21 National Meeting

Ready by 21 – a signature initiative of the Forum for Youth Investment – has announced its 2013 National Meeting. Will you attend?

Striving to ensure that young people are ready for college, work and life by age 21, Ready by 21 is hosting a National Meeting designed help state and local leaders explore the policies and practices that will help young people succeed. Participants of all levels - from state policy coordination and community-wide cradle-to-career efforts to out-of-school time systems, single issue coalitions and neighborhood-based initiatives – are invited to attend.

The National Meeting is built around three themes aligned with the Ready by 21 Theory of Change:
  • Strengthening and Aligning Community Partnerships around common data, goals and action
  • Improving Supports and Systems for Children, Youth and Families by focusing on quality, coordination and reach
  • Changing Expectations and Outcomes for Young People to be productive, connected and healthy 

The Ready by 21 National Meeting is an excellent opportunity for local leaders to network with other communities and individuals committed to improving outcomes for youth and for leaders to collectively explore some of toughest challenges facing communities.

The meeting will take place March 11-13 in Atlanta, Georgia. For more information about the meeting, or to register, please click here.
