We're thrilled to share that the Jewish Teen Funders Network and The Jewish Book Council will be a hosting an online book club of The Millennialization of Everything with author Jeremy K. Balkin on Tuesday, February 26th, 12pm-1pm EST.
During the webinar, we will explore together:
- How do stereotypes and assumptions about generations affect our work with teens and our roles as educators?
- What can we learn about attitudes to charitable giving while examining generational behavioral trends?
- Looking at the Jewish value of L’dor Vador (From Generation To Generation) what can be passed on from previous generations in order to guide teens in charitable giving?
Millennials are the largest living generation in the U.S., weighing in at an astonishing 92 million people. By 2025, Millennials will make up 40% of eligible voters and 75% of the global workforce. Their sheer size and unprecedented influence have disrupted every status quo impacting the world around us including every major industry for everyone and everything. Award-winning author Jeremy K. Balkin coined the phrase and refers to this phenomenon as the “Millennialization of Everything.” Socio-economic and historical events have fundamentally shaped the Millennial mentality and their preferences and behaviors. Debunking commonly held stereotypes and understanding the Millennial mentality are critical to harnessing the power of their best traits and unlocking future trends. Only then can we effectively engage, motivate and empower the most important generation in history.
