Opportunity Youth in 2Gen Practice
September 12 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Traditionally, the focus for alleviating generational poverty has been on either early childhood education or workforce education and training for parents, while two‐generation approaches focus on both sets of needs. However, most 2-Gen approaches focus on parents and young children, leaving vulnerable adolescents – including the 6.7 million 16 to 24‐ year-olds who are neither working nor in school – without support.
Join us on September 12th to engage in a conversation on what steps Community Action Agencies can take serve this increasingly vulnerable population. Experts from ICF International will provide an overview of the challenges facing this demographic, and provide insights and research to guide CAAs in their service delivery approaches. We will also hear from a field practitioner who will share their lessons learned in this space.
