Massachusetts Statewide Action Plan

The Forum for Youth Investment facilitated a Ready by 21 approach over the course of three retreats with the Massachusetts Action Planning Team made up of over 100 members.  The Action Planning Team (APT) was convened and supported by United Way of Massachusetts Bay and Merrimack Valley and the Massachusetts Executive Office of Health and Human Services.  Made up of stakeholders across sectors, disciplines, and agencies, the APT held ground-breaking conversations to define and advance a set of shared goals and strategies capable of lifting all children, youth and families toward self-sufficiency and success for life.  In June 2009, the APT submitted the plan "Ready for Lifelong Success A Call for Collaborative Action On Behalf of Massachusetts’ Children and Youth" to Governor Deval Patrick and Governor's Readiness Cabinet.
