Parents from two-generation programs led by Ascend Fellows were nominated to participate as leaders at the Aspen ThinkXChange.  Ascend Fellow Wes Moore interviewed these amazing parents, who shared their stories at a special dinner plenary.  Questions explored during the session included: What are the challenges for parents who have participated in two-generation programs? What are their thoughts about their own generation, as well as the next? What gives them hope?

The following two-generation programs were represented on stage:
