Ready by 21
Ready by 21 is the Forum’s signature initiative based on decades of experience working with state and local leaders. It is a set of innovative strategies that helps communities and states improve the odds that all children and youth will be ready for college, work and life. Ready by 21 provides clear standards to achieve collective impact, tools and solutions to help leaders make progress, and ways to measure and track success along the way. Specifically, Ready by 21 helps leaders build broader partnerships, set bigger goals, collect and use better data, and take bolder actions. A growing number of communities and states are using these strategies to change the way they do business. To learn more about Ready by 21, please visit the Ready by 21 website.
