Every year, the Ready by 21 National Meeting brings together hundreds of leaders from around the country who are working to get all young people ready by 21 – for college, work and life. These leaders have dedicated themselves to improving the odds for children and youth through collective impact initiatives, policy alignment and program quality improvement.
Our Fifth Annual National Meeting was held in Baltimore, Md., at the Marriott Waterfront and had plenty of engaging and exciting sessions.
From the opening panel on Pushing High Quality Practice Across Settings & Systems to the closing session featuring young people from Opportunity Youth United reflecting on the struggles and opportunities that helped shape them, the event spotlighted the energy and passion being brought to efforts across the country to help young people. All the powerful plenary speeches from the Ready by 21 National Meeting are now available.
