March 31 - April 2
The National Meeting brings together up to 400 national, state and local leaders committed to improving partnerships, policies and practices for children and youth. These leaders are managing change at all levels – from state policy coordination and community-wide cradle-to-career efforts to out-of-school time systems, single-issue coalitions and neighborhood-based initiatives. They come from business, nonprofits, education, policy, philanthropy and intermediaries, along with national organizations that are partners in delivering Ready by 21 strategies.
