July/August 2008Vol. 9, No. 6Forum for Youth Launches New Website
A new website has been launched by the Forum for Youth Investment in support of its initiative, the "Ready by 21TM Challenge." The Ready by 21 big picture approach encourages leaders - from young people to parents, program directors to policymakers - to work collaboratively to ensure that all young people are ready by age 21 for the challenges of college, work, and life. The approach encourages leaders to view youth and their families as agents of change rather than clients and to invest early and often in programs that support youth and build on their strengths.
The Forum for Youth Investment is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that provides information, connections, and tools to the policymakers, advocates, researchers, program professionals, and youth and adult leaders who work in youth programs. Resources on the website include a listing of publications and subscriptions to free electronic newsletters.
