Prepared by 20

Helping our youth grow into successful adults is a priority for our community. Through the Prepared by 20 initiative, we are focusing people and resources on the needs of young people between the ages of 10 and 20 years old.

We are creating an alliance of community leaders, educators, community organizations and residents who are committed to making Benton and Franklin Counties a place where young people develop positive attitudes and competencies to grow up healthy. By fully mobilizing individuals, organizations and the community, we will leverage our community’s collective support to meet the needs of our young people.

Prepared by 20 will create awareness and connect our youth with the resources and assets they need to prepare for life ahead.

A group of community leaders and organizations has been helping with the planning and implementation of Prepared by 20.
