The Readiness Abilities Map

December 23, 2014

The Readiness Abilities, Skillsets and Mindsets are an easy-to-understand snapshot of what young people must be able to do in order to meet life demands in adulthood.

To create this list, Stephanie Krauss and her colleagues at the Forum for Youth Investment consulted over 200 references, including nearly 60 sets of “success” standards from each major youth-serving system. The 10 Readiness Abilities reflect the latest research and best thinking—taken from science, education, youth development, and labor—about what skills and attitudes matter most in adult life.
