Youth Issues and Advocacy

Youth Issues and Advocacy

This is the place for people on the ground: those of you delivering family, community and schools supports.

You work in the crucial middle gear of the Ready by 21 Theory of Change. That theory says that in order to improve outcomes for children and youth, leaders must increase their collective capacity to improve and expand the supports that you provide.

Where do you find the latest news, research and best practices to help you deliver those supports?  –  the Forum for Youth Investment’s one-stop news and advocacy network to mobilize action by and for young people. Here you’ll find high-quality, vetted news, tools and stories about a wide range of topics, including:

early childhood

child welfare &
foster care


out-of-school time

college access
and success

job readiness

youth development

civic engagement
