What is the Two-Generation Approach?
As defined by the Aspen Institute, two-generation (2Gen) approaches build family well-being by intentionally and simultaneously working with children and the adults in their lives together. 2Gen approaches center on the whole family to create a legacy of educational success and economic prosperity that passes from one generation to the next.
