Maine Brings Together Communities to Support Early Childhood Development
Those looking for ways to get community members involved in Ready by 21 and get media attention for their efforts might learn from an island in Maine. Leaders on Deer Isle held a Ready by 21 workshop in December 2011 where parents, teachers, administration and students discussed assets and goals for all their youth, from birth to adulthood. They did more than talk: They broke into workgroups to identify specific needs, heard a youth summarize a Ready by 21-led effort at the local high school and planned their next meeting.
