Strategies to Promote Two-Generational Outcomes

Feb. 14, 2020

This webinar provides examples of how an outcomes orientation can help organizations implement a 2-Gen strategy to improve outcomes for young parents and their children. The webinar features an in-depth case study of how Third Sector and the Massachusetts Department of Transitional Assistance (MA DTA) have collaborated to transform 2-Gen theory into practice over the last 2+ years through the agency’s Young Parents Program (YPP). The YPP program is a TANF-funded program serving young adults under the age of 25 who are pregnant or parenting and is focused on education outcomes such as high school equivalency completion and parenting outcomes such as increased knowledge of child development.
