Mission, Vision & Method

2Gen Approach

A two-generation approach combines high-quality educational opportunities for young children with strong evidence-based educational, workforce readiness and parenting programming for families.

This strategy engages children and parents together to achieve three key outcomes:

  • Children enter school prepared for success,
  • Families create a nurturing and secure environment for their children, and
  • Families connect to other families.

CAP Tulsa brings a two-generation vision to life by:

  • Working across the agency to strengthen program offerings for parents,
  • Helping families develop a path to achieve goals, and
  • Engaging in constant communication with the agency and training staff on the two-generation philosophy.
