Every year, the Ready by 21 National Meeting brings together more than 500 local, state and national leaders who like you are committed to improving partnerships, policies and practices for children and youth. These leaders manage 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 at the national, state and local levels.

Our eighth annual National Meeting will be held in Seattle, Washington and will feature plenty of engaging and exciting sessions. You'll hear about topics, strategies, research and stories in these areas and more:

  • Strengthening and aligning partnerships

  • Exploring the connection between readiness and equity

  • Accelerating data usage at scale

  • Creating large-scale shared investments in quality

  • Fostering social and emotional learning across schools & communities

  • Re-connecting opportunity youth

  • Creating child and youth master plans

  • Examining the role of schools and afterschool programs in implementing SEL initiatives
