President's Remarks: Moving Ideas to Impact to Change the Odds for Youth - Charting the Forum's Course to 2010
Reflecting on her life as a teen growing up in the low-income neighborhoods of Washington, DC, Karen Pittman spells out why she is determined to have the Forum meet its goal of challenging national partners and state and local change makers to ensure that every young person is Ready by 21®.
Engaging young people as partners in community change is a compelling idea, but translating that idea into effective practice requires focused attention to a range issues. The principles described in this paper emerged from the commingling of research and practice that occurred when the Forum for Youth Investment merged with Community IMPACT! USA.
In conjuction with the National Launch of Ready by 21, the Forum unveiled a new Web site. Designed to be user-friendly, easy to navigate, and packed with content, this new platform is designed to provide you everything you need to know to advance your efforts to ensure that young people are ready for college, work and life. We look forward to hearing your feedback!
