New Workshops Unveiled for National Meeting
Building community engagement. Measuring the impact of quality programs. Using new data in new ways. Those are the subjects of new workshops announced for the Third Annual Ready by 21® National Meeting, where leaders will explore how to improve the odds for children and youth by strengthening partnerships, improving practices and aligning policies. Come and learn about:
Community Engagement in Master Planning
How do you engage community members in a cross-sector, comprehensive planning effort to improve outcomes for children and youth? Leaders from Alexandria, Va., share their successes and lessons learned through the master plan process, from data gathering and strategy selection to alignment with other community efforts and implementation.
Does Quality Matter in Afterschool?
New findings from three rigorous evaluations conducted by American Institutes for Research demonstrate that participation in high-quality afterschool programs can improve school success. This session will share the findings from these studies, interpret the pattern and magnitude of effects and discuss the implications of this evidence for afterschool policies.
Using New Gallup Data to Build Better Supports
Leaders from Northern Kentucky will talk about how they use the Enhanced Gallup Student Poll to learn about their young people and craft services to better meet their needs. See how the poll tracks individual student hope, engagement and well-being to produce a "Ready for the Future" score.
