2020 Ready by 21 National Meeting Workshop Request for Proposals

Submission Deadline: Friday, November 1, 2019 

Every year, the Ready by 21 National Meeting brings together hundreds of leaders from around the country who are working to get all young people ready by 21 – for college, work and life. These leaders have dedicated themselves to improving the odds for children and youth through collective impact initiatives, policy alignment and program quality improvement. Be a part of this unique opportunity to connect with 650+ leaders who are working to improve outcomes for young people in communities and states across the country. 

The 2020 National Meeting will be held April 15-17 in Louisville, Kentucky.    

Approximately 45 Workshops will be offered during one of four 75-minute periods on April 16 and 17. In addition, approximately 25 applicants will be selected to kick off shorter, 25-minute roundtable discussions with short presentations. 

Because of the growing number of applicants for workshops, we encourage you to consider both formats.

Applicants will receive preliminary notification of their standing by early January.  Because of our desire to offer participants a balanced set of workshops, applicants may be asked if they are willing to modify presentation formats or speak to specific questions (e.g., say more about their findings or tools).
