Future Ready is a public campaign in Massachusetts to increase awareness and promote understanding of the tools available to ensure students are "college and career ready." The initiative aims to
Although Massachusetts has many promising college and career ready programs, the resources that help a student make informed choices about what course to take or extracurricular pursuits to consider are not always clear and accessible. The Future Ready campaign identifies and promotes resources in a comprehensive way, and supports their effective coordination and communication through this website and toolkits for adults who work with and influence youth.
Future Ready also works with communities to develop local Future Ready action plans that similarly connect programs and resources. These communities engage local K-12, higher education and business stakeholders in collaborative planning and action to ensure that all students are ready for college and career.
Future Ready is a collaborative effort between the Massachusetts Business Alliance for Education, the Massachusetts Department of Higher Education, the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, the Massachusetts Educational Financing Authority and more.
