The Two Generations Together Initiative


The National Head Start Association's Two Generations Together Initiative will increase awareness of two-generation adult education and job training models that are part of the comprehensive child and family services delivered by Head Start programs across the country.

Two Generations Together will highlight the most successful two-generation efforts that have developed in Head Start programs across the country and disseminate strategies and resources to help other Head Start and early learning programs develop or enhance two-generation work of their own.
