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.
For this year's fourth annual Ready by 21 National Meeting, we already have representatives from more than 150 organizations registered.

Attention United Way staff: United Ways can now use flex credits to attend this year's meeting.
The National Meeting will be held at the Sheraton New Orleans Hotel. We have a reserved group rate of $169/night available until March 10. You are responsible for booking your own accomodations. You can book your room directly through the Ready by 21 National Meeting portal.
