Change In Mind: Evolution of the Family Partnership’s Theory of Change

This 2Gen Toolbox is a growing collection of resources developed by Ascend Fellows and Ascend Network partners — pioneering two-generation leaders and organizations working to create opportunities for and meet the needs of children and the adults in their lives together.

With the generous permission of the Ascend Network and Fellows, we are making these models, case studies, tools, and other materials available. Our goal for the Toolbox is to facilitate learning, adoption, and scale of two-generation approaches.

Unless otherwise noted, these materials were not authored by Ascend at the Aspen Institute. Ascend reviews the materials for relevance before posting; however, inclusion in the Toolbox does not signify Ascend’s unqualified endorsement. See criteria for inclusion.

We welcome feedback on these tools. We will continue to add to these resources and hope you find them valuable.
