Forum for Youth Investment
On August 12, the Forum for Youth Investment hosted a webinar on the topic of ‘Aligning Policies and Funding’. The session, part of the Ready by 21 Webinar Series, featured presenters from Austin, TX and the Finance Project, a member of the Ready by 21 National Partnership.
Effective leadership for changing the odds for children and youth requires motivating a number of distinct groups to act. It is essential for leaders to develop an aligned and focused advocacy and communications strategy that articulates and builds demand for changing the odds for children and youth.
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.
