5 SUNY Community Colleges are participating in the Advancing Educational Attainment for Student Parents: Student Success Center Network Learning Community. This opportunity is presented by Jobs For the Future in partnership with the Student Success Center Network and community college representatives. The goal of this learning community is to raise awareness of challenges faced by student parents and opportunities to leverage the two-generation (2Gen) framework to center family well-being and enhance student parent success.
What is 2Gen?
Two-generation (2Gen) approaches build family well-being by intentionally and simultaneously working with children and the adults in their lives together. As children, parents, and families grow and change across their lifespan, 2Gen approaches align opportunities to help families pursue their goals and thrive, optimizing each person’s potential along the way. The results are healthy parents with family-supporting jobs, healthy children meeting developmental milestones, and better-connected individuals able to participate in civic and family life.

-Broome Community College
