Educate & Innovate: Two-Generation & ALICE Idea Jam

United Way of Greater Chattanooga 630 Market St, Chattanooga, TN, United States

Learn how your organization can serve the whole family and develop ideas on how to collaborate across a two-generation approach. Join us for Educate & Innovate: Two-Generation & ALICE Idea Jam! United Way of Greater Chattanooga is invested in developing a deeper two-generation approach in our community work. The two-generation approach is all about giving families a chance to thrive together. When we focus on the empowerment of both parents and children, we're setting the stage for a brighter future for the whole family. ​ This E&I Session will start with an introduction to the two-generation approach where we will develop a community asset map that helps us better understand who is serving who in our area and how it connects to the work of other nonprofits. Hannah Lancaster, Director of Nonprofit Support and Innovation, will then walk the group through the Design Thinking process of developing an idea on how to collaborate across the two-generation approach. ​ Nonprofits will leave this in-person, half-day session with a deeper understanding of how to serve the whole family through collaborative opportunities and an idea to use in your Catalyst Fund grant application. Lunch will be provided.
