Two Generations. One Future: An Anthology from the Ascend Fellowship, featuring the 2012-2013 class of the Aspen Institute Ascend Fellows, is the culmination of more than two years of collaboration and bold idea development, aimed at building a cycle of intergenerational opportunity in America. The Anthology includes essays from leading practitioners, policymakers and experts, and researchers, capturing the momentum, challenges, and opportunities for two-generation approaches emerging at the local, state, and national levels. The Anthology features: • Promising Models, Principles, and Policy Opportunities – Exploration of promising two-generation practices and how the values that underlie them influence policies at the local, state and federal levels. • Points of View – Insights, challenges, and lessons from experts leading ground-breaking two-generation efforts across the nation. • A Forward-Facing Vision – Ideas for refining programmatic approaches and policies to better address the needs of and opportunities for children and their parents together.
