The Better Together Conference brought together nearly 400 public officials, educators, youth program leaders, nonprofit workers and funders from across the country. Co-sponsored by the Forum for Youth Investment and four partners - the Wallace Foundation, the National League of Cities, the Collaborative for Building After School Systems and the American Youth Policy Forum - the conference aimed to share lessons about building effective systems and to encourage cities to better coordinate resources from multiple stakeholders.
