The Millennial Impact, How They Connect, Get Involved and Give Back – Blog Series

millennials

For the first time in history, there are four generations actively in the work force, Traditionalists, Boomers, Gen Xers and Millennials.

Each generation imagines itself to be more intelligent than the one that went before it, and wiser than the one one that comes after it.” – George Orwell

While each generation has it’s persona, millennials are highly engaged and actively involved in the nonprofit sector.  According to a study by Walden University and Harriss Interactive, 81% have donated money, goods or services, despite our tough economy.  They thrive to support causes that align with their values and personal belief systems.

Forbes contributor, Dan Schawbel, recently wrote an article,  on why you can’t ignore the almost 80 million millennials who will soon be the leaders in our society.

We spend a lot of time teaching our nonprofit clients how to Bridge the Age Gap, Understanding Generational Communications but over the next several weeks, we will take a deep dive into how to connect, engage and motivate millennials through current research and interviews with those who are influencing their generation.
