Communities collaborate to help young people.

The Ready by 21 National Partnership: Changing the Odds for Youth by Changing the Way We Do Business

This Webinar is for foundations and agencies that support positive youth development in communities and youth-serving organizations

Ready by 21, a new partnership, invites community leaders to a new level of collaboration to ensure children and youth are Ready by 21 - ready for college, work, and life. At Search Institute we are excited about these innovative ideas and resources that complement the Developmental Assets approach.

You are invited to learn about the latest developments in this unique approach to improving outcomes for young people in communities across America. Please join the Ready by 21 National Partnership for a live webinar presentation and discussion about how leaders can use the Ready by 21 framework.
