What is

Future Ready Collier?

A network of organizations, businesses, schools and community members working to ensure every child in Collier County, Florida, is ready for Kindergarten, and every young person enters adulthood with a vision and plan to accomplish that vision.

Future Ready Collier is the Collier partner for the regional FutureMakers Coalition, seeking to transform the Southwest Florida workforce by increasing the number of college degrees, certificates or other high-quality credentials to 55 percent by 2025.


Future Ready Collier?

Most communities, including Collier County, have a variety of programs and institutions targeted toward children and youth at different ages and stages. The time is now to strengthen partnerships to leverage improvements in education and the community to deepen our collective capacity to build and sustain a dynamic economy that works for everyone. Working together toward some specific community-wide goals will leverage resources to really move the needle for children and families in our community.

The future of our community is only as strong as the next generations. Let’s all be Future Ready Collier.
