Generation Z: Shaping The Future

It’s time for Gen Z to be welcomed as partners in shaping their future, rather than simply bystanders.
For any change to endure, it must be rooted in communities, driven by the people it will serve, and informed by those who know our children best. Who knows our children better than themselves? It’s time for Gen Z to be welcomed as partners in shaping their future, rather than simply bystanders.

The Walton Family Foundation is committed to opening the education echo chamber, listening to what Gen Z wants for themselves, and calling on allies and communities to support. As the next generation of leaders, it is crucial that we acknowledge Gen Z’s values to better understand the future of our country. That is why, for the past year and a half, we have been hosting conversations with youth around the country and investing in research and polling to uncover their beliefs, identities and needs.
