Ready by 21 Policy Coalition Overview

Thumbnail of Overview

With the goal of aligning federal policies with state and local efforts on the ground, the Forum for Youth Investment, in partnership with Corporate Voices for Working Families, launched the Ready by 21® Policy Coalition in 2010.

The Ready by 21 Policy Coalition advocates for policies that advance a seamless continuum of supports—from cradle to college and career.

• The Coalition’s top priority is to advance policies that are designed to strengthen successful state and local collaborations, such as Children’s Cabinets, that are working in support of children and youth.
• The Coalition’s second priority is to advance policies that are designed to strengthen state and local interagency capacity to establish big picture goals and long-term plans; administer grants; engage young people in decision-making; improve program quality and
accountability; collect and use data to drive decision-making; and provide a seamless set of child and youth services.
• The Coalition’s third priority is to ensure that all child and youth policies are designed to align with existing efforts on their behalf, and to be implemented as one part of a greater whole.
