The Federal Emergency Management Agency, the American Red Cross, and the Department of Education recently announced the publication of the National Strategy for Youth Preparedness Education: Empowering, Educating, and Building Resilience. The document provides a vision for a nation of prepared youth and provides nine priority steps that partners at the local, state, and national levels can take.
More than 25 private and public organizations have come together to support the National Strategy. Further, the National Strategy requests that organizations affirm their support for youth preparedness in alignment with the nine steps and offers an opportunity to collaborate on a youth preparedness movement dedicated to build a more resilient nation.
