Ready by 21 Learning Lab: Tools and Techniques for Achieving Results
May 23-24, 2017
Silver Spring, Md.
The Forum for Youth Investment is bringing you a practical, hands-on, two-day workshop and coaching session designed for backbone leaders, steering committee members and other partners actively involved in community change efforts focused on children & youth.
The workshop is designed for leaders who are thinking about how the critical tasks of community change management can be staged and sequenced in order to move steadily towards improving outcomes. It is particularly useful for those in the early stages of forming or planning an initiative, or in the process of re-igniting or refreshing their initiative for the next phase of joint work. Special emphasis is given to tools and techniques that help leaders align and connect multiple issues and efforts, identifying areas for joint planning and action.

Thought Leader Roundtable: Increasing Alignment Between Social and Emotional Learning and Out-of-School Time
Free Conference Call and Discussion
Thursday, April 13, 2017
2:00-3:00 PM EDT
These candid, unscripted conversations feature Karen Pittman with some of the most influential, boundary-pushing leaders working to improve the lives of children and youth.
This upcoming session will feature Katie Brackenridge, Vice President of Programs for the Partnership for Children & Youth, based in Oakland, Calif., and will focus on how states and localities can align their school and out-of-school time (OST) systems - particularly as it relates to social and emotional learning (SEL). These systems often work with the same children, but do not always coordinate in ways that can ensure greater communication and better outcomes. The conversation will focus on some of the lessons learned statewide in California and the challenges that remain for aligning the K-12 and OST systems to support youth.
