Our workshops, keynotes, consulting and coaching all are tailored for each organization’s mission and priorities.
Our workshops are designed for senior staff, board members, youth workers, teachers, parents, counselors, funders, policy advocates, and elected officials.
Below are descriptions of three of our workshops, each facilitated by our intergenerational team, which are
- Hands-on and interactive
- Practical with real outcomes
- Deep and thought-provoking
Participants will receive resource materials and access to our private Facebook group.
Workshop 1: Expanding DEI to Include Youth
Features organizations that expand their Diversity, Equity & Inclusion efforts by intentionally engaging youth, especially from historically marginalized backgrounds. Participants also will learn how these multi-racial intergenerational approaches shift from doing “to” and “for” youth to collaborating “with” the most diverse generation in history.
Workshop 2: The ROI of Real Youth Involvement
Identifies immediate and long-term benefits of infusing new thinking and perspectives by diverse youth which demands a dramatic shift in adult attitudes as well as organizational adjustments. Participants will engage in a candid discussion about why sustained intergenerational investment is worth it!
Workshop 3: Rx for Multi-Racial Intergenerational Collaboration
Confronts the challenges of building a truly diverse and representative organization that no longer excludes 25% of the population. Participants will work through 8 essential steps including organizational commitment and structural readiness, staff preparation including unlearning adultism, HR protocols, multiple youth recruitment strategies, specific supports for Gen Zers, ongoing professional development and regular assessments.

KEYNOTES & PRESENTATIONS
Adam and Wendy as well as our Gen Z experts can speak about trends and high impact examples of youth infusion to audiences of all ages. A few examples….
How are school boards and superintendents really collaborating with students–not in National Honor Society but those really struggling?
How are cities involving teens and young adults, particularly those who rely on public transit, parks, library services, etc?
How are advocacy organizations collaborating with youth-led movements that can influence policymakers and attract media coverage?
Let’s talk about what Wendy and Adam like to talk about!
Each participant will receive a packet with interactive exercises, resources specifically about best practices sustaining youth-adult partnerships, as well as recommended reading about dismantling white supremacy, and supplanting adultism with robust intergenerational collaboration.
Access to our private Facebook group which will provide ongoing opportunities to continue the this journey.
