What We Do

The future of IDEAS work, and by extension, the vitality of our organizations and communities, lies in empowering Millennial and Gen-Z talent, who represent a growing majority of the workforce and community leadership.


Now more than ever, our organizations and communities need new perspectives, linkages, and ideas to disrupt the systems of inequity and injustice that our generations have inherited. In order to co-create a more just and equitable society, our programs and services support next-gen leaders (teal) and organizations (navy) at the intersection of their most urgent needs: Community, Resources, and Opportunity.
