Webinar: Introduction to the Ready by 21 Challenge - Summary and Resources

Ready by 21 isn’t a program or a campaign or even an initiative. It is a challenge to all who care about children and youth to think differently – to learn a different way to approach all of the tasks associated with trying to manage, make or measure change at any level from the classroom to the capitol – so that they can act differently.

Ready by 21 Webinar: Program Landscape Mapping

Event Teaser: 

Do you know how many youth services and organizations are in your community? What resources are available to them?

Landscape mapping is a process that enables community members, decision makers and stakeholders to identify or inventory existing youth services and organizations. The approach can help move communities and states to examine their current assets, help to create connections, improve efficiency in the use of limited resources and assist community members to know what is available to them.
