Ready by 21 Big Picture Messages & Frameworks Webinar - June 2008

There are numerous child and youth development frameworks being used by youth serving organizations and government entities. This session examined the commonalities of the major frameworks and discussed how youth programs and policies can be improved with a coordinated framework.  This session, led by Forum Executive Director Karen Pittman, guided understanding in how to connect a framework to a community's programs and initiatives for youth. Debbie Herr of the Black Oak Mine, California Unified School District and Julienne Smrcka with the New Mexico Children's Cabinet offered their perspectives and experience on developing a youth-centered framework and using that framework to guide strategy to improve the odds for children and youth.
