Two Generations Together Institute
On January 26th, 2015, NHSA hosted a day-long Two Generations Together Institute. Program leaders from the featured programs shared their stories and strategies in the morning, and in the afternoon a series of panels offered insights into designing your own two-generation work from both local program leaders and national experts. The sessions were recorded to preserve the important lessons and conversations from the Institute! Watch each one below.
