Case study Jul 10, 2017

This report features communities in San Antonio, Texas and Durham, North Carolina to examine the key components of two-generation initiatives: social capital; early childhood education; post-secondary education and workforce development; economic assets; and health and well-being.

Policy changes enacted in response to our understanding of the biology of trauma are prioritizing earlier interventions like nurse home visiting services for at-risk families, and an increase in pre-kindergarten programs. This short animation by Nadja Oertelt is part of The Atlantic’s Next America: Early Childhood project, which is supported by grants from the Annie E. Casey Foundation and...

What's it like being a first-generation college student? Unlike most of their peers, they can't rely on the experience of parents and family to help them register for classes, fill out financial aid forms, or quickly adjust to their new lives on campus. These are the stories of several first-generation college students and graduates, and this video explores their challenges, sources of support, and recommendations for policymakers. With a third of all incoming college freshmen being first-generation, telling their stories and informing stakeholders is more important than ever.
