Why Our Ready by 21 Team Jumped for Leap of Reason

Brad Bryant
Friday, August 24, 2012

Atlanta’s Ready by 21 Leadership Council is one of the strongest in the country. Leap of Reason is a powerful book about the importance (and difficulty) of building a performance management culture that is embraced by everyone from the rec room to the board room. In this blog, the leadership council meets the book. I hope the results inspire all of you who are working to make fundamental changes across systems to improve the odds for young people.

Harnessing Collective Impact to Prevent Teen Pregnancy

Kim Nolte
Friday, October 25, 2013

While Ready by 21 helps communities implement collective impact strategies across all issues and age groups, those strategies can also be used to address specific issues in a community among specific groups of youth. Just look at Atlanta, where leaders have joined together in a broad-scale Ready by 21 initiative while also addressing individual areas of concern. We invited one of those leaders – Kim Nolte of the Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Power & Potential – to tell you about how collective impact is helping them progress on combating teen pregnancy.
