The Intergenerational Opportunities theme arose out of Catholic Community Connection’s 2013 strategic plan. It was initially aimed at increasing collaboration between the Catholic colleges and university in Cleveland and the Catholic service providers in the Diocese of Cleveland.
As the initiative gathered momentum two overarching goals emerged:
(1) Creating a pipeline of young adults interested in serving in Catholic ministries.
(2) Developing the next generation of leaders for Catholic ministries in northeast Ohio.
