Two generation approaches are designed to break the cycle of inter-generational poverty, typically using interventions for both children and parents from the same household. This session will explore how local governments and nonprofits can support two-generation approaches in their communities, using Montgomery County’s Linkages to Learning program as a case study. We and will also share findings from Welcoming America’s research on member engagement across areas including early childhood education, English language learning, parenting, and workforce development.
