Sample 2Gen Theory of Change

View theory of change

A two-generation program theory of change may look like the attached, but it is expected that individual programs will vary the components widely based on outcomes targeted, resources available, the views of key stakeholders, and local innovation. In particular, when developing theories of change, two-generation programs weigh heavily the compositions, cultures, needs, strengths, and personal goals of the families they serve – recognizing that these elements are not only essential to targeting the right outcomes, but also to establishing effective strategies and short- and medium-term benchmarks along the way to long-range outcomes.
