The two-generation (2Gen) field is rapidly advancing: scale-able solutions exist and are being expanded. States Leading the Way: Practical Solutions that Lift Up Children and Families lifts up the most promising, actionable solutions from seven states that can break the cycle of intergenerational poverty for families in the U.S.
Ascend at the Aspen Institute is the national hub for breakthrough ideas and collaborations that move children and the adults in their lives to educational success, economic security, and health and well-being. We take a two-generation approach to our work, focusing on children and the adults in their lives together, and we bring a gender and racial equity lens to our analysis. In everything we do, we draw on the expertise and experience of families.
