Readiness Abilities and Practices

The Readiness Abilities and Practices are easy-to-understand snapshots of what young people must be able to do in order to meet life demands and what practices will foster readiness best. The Abilities and Practices reflect the best science and thinking on what matters most for young people’s wellness and readiness.
