The Two-Generation (2Gen) Approach guides our work by encouraging programs to serve children and their caregivers together with well-being supports for whole families.
2Gen has been an integral approach in the development of the state's Palmetto Pre-K and soon-to-be First 5 SC portals. The web tools ease access to programs and services that meet families’ health, educational and developmental needs. The state will soon have its first Family Voice Council which will influence cross-agency policies and procedures to provide life-impacting opportunities for families with young children.
South Carolina is committed to recognizing and creating opportunities that meet the needs of the state’s children and the adults in their lives. ECAC Executive Director Georgia Mjartan is an Aspen Ascend Fellow, a group that has pioneered 2Gen leadership. South Carolina is one of six states in the country to recognize the importance of this work by hiring a Two-Generation coordinator. To learn more about the 2Gen approach, visit Aspen Ascend.
