Prior to the official start of the 2020 Ready by 21 National Meeting in Louisville, Kentucky, the Forum and our partners will host a number of pre-sessions. Below we will provide brief descriptions of each one as they become available.

Readiness Refresh: Infusing the Science of Learning and Development into Practice, Policy, and Research

This invitation-only pre-session on Wednesday, April 15 will bring together national and local youth-serving organizations (including Weikart Center clients, Success360 grantees, SD Bechtel, Jr. grantees, and others) for a day-long session on how to apply the science of learning and development to tackle issues most relevant to participants’ work. The pre-session will include networking over breakfast and lunch, a plenary, and afternoon break-out groups.

Changing the odds for young people has never been more important
