Ready by 21

Every year, the Ready by 21 National Meeting brings together hundreds of leaders from around the country who are working to get all young people ready by 21 – for college, work and life. These leaders have dedicated themselves to improving the odds for children and youth through collective impact initiatives, policy alignment and program quality improvement.


There will be dozens of stimulating workshops and sessions from top leaders in education, policymaking, advocacy and out-of-school time. With the goal of ensuring all children and youth are ready by 21, essential topics such as defining and ensuring readiness, promoting equity, increasing shared commitments and impact, improving program quality and supporting social and emotional learning (SEL) skills will be highlighted.
