On Tues­day, March 28, 2023, the Annie E. Casey Foun­da­tion host­ed a dis­cus­sion-based webi­nar to share ear­ly lessons from its efforts to devel­op a strat­e­gy for inter­gen­er­a­tional engage­ment to advance com­mu­ni­ty change.

Dur­ing the webi­nar, the Foun­da­tion’s Nation­al Com­mu­ni­ty Strate­gies team issued a request for let­ters of inter­est to devel­op and test an inter­gen­er­a­tional com­mu­ni­ty engage­ment tool kit aimed at deep­en­ing youth-adult part­ner­ships with­in com­mu­ni­ty change initiatives. 

The Foun­da­tion seeks four orga­ni­za­tions to serve as grantee part­ners for this learn­ing col­lab­o­ra­tive. Please sub­mit any ques­tions and/​or let­ters of inter­est by 5 p.m. on April 242023.

Par­tic­i­pants learned about the Foundation’s mul­ti-phased inter­gen­er­a­tional engage­ment effort, which places com­mu­ni­ty orga­ni­za­tions at the cen­ter of pro­gram design and implementation.
