Wild Apricot summarizes the work of several organizations researching what moves Millenials, shares links to reports, and identifies the implications from the research.
Since 2010, their four Millennial Impact reports have identified some key insight into this generation of individuals born after 1979. Key trends have included:
- Millennials engage with causes to help other people, not institutions.
- Millennials support issues rather than organizations.
- Millennials prefer to perform smaller actions before fully committing to a cause.
- Millennials are influenced by the decisions and behaviors of their peers.
- Millennials treat all their assets (time, money, network, etc.) as having equal value.
- Millennials need to experience an organization’s work without having to be on site.
As Wild Apricot points out, BLS reports there are 14 million 20- to 24-year-olds and almost 32 million 25- to 34-year-olds employed in the US. They "are both your current and future members, donors and volunteers." To effectively engage Millenials, we need to understand who they are and what they respond to.

The Buffer post 9 Informative Infographics To Guide Your Visual Content Marketing presents, you guessed it, nine arguments in support of using visuals. A number of the arguments for using visuals are grounded in research about how people learn and retain information, the ways they engage with what they see. I'm most interested in how people process information and how the information can be used to convey information to various audiences.
Find the most convenient location for Saturday or Monday-Friday meals by using the searchable map on onecityyouth.dc.gov, by calling 211, or by referring to the Saturday lunch list, below.

CIR's Lisa Cohen says the nonprofit, nonpartisan journalism outfit will co-produce the show with the Public Radio Exchange, highlighting some of CIR's ongoing investigations, as well as the watchdog journalism of other initiatives, in their one-hour radio show.
Why does this matter to DC, local politics and public policy? Because the site and the new program show what's possible.
One possibility, for example, is the video game designed to help kids make healthy eating decisions (see the blog post How CIR used a video game to teach kids about healthy eating). There's no reason why a DC nonprofit could not do a similar thing.
Another example of possibility is described in 7 mass surveillance tools your local police might be using. What this triggers for me is the idea that we could use technology to document landlord/property problems to make renter challenges more transparent. Problems could be combined with building permit information and other types of info useful to current or potential renters.
What ideas do you have for using technology for good?
