The Minnesota 2-Generation Policy Network is a collaborative of state agencies, counties local organizations, and tribal nations in Minnesota, designed to advance two-generation approaches to policies and practices that improve outcomes for children and parents together. From a two-year period of this inter-agency and cross-sector effort, the network established a set of guiding principles–define the “how” of two-generation work. This tool intends to surface strengths and opportunities for moving these principles into practice for those who create policy or manage programs that affect families.The principles are equally important and interrelated; as you go through the tool, you may find that practices in one principle rely on practices in another. They are presented in no particular order.
