MI Gen CIC is a not for profit Community Interest Company, formed in 2013, and consisting of experienced practitioners from Lancaster University, Lancashire Museums & Libraries Service and a local small and medium enterprise. We focus on development of communities using the power of intergenerational cooperation.
We are experienced in project management, evaluation and R&D in non-formal education.
Specific expertise includes conducting primary & secondary research both of a qualitative (empirical) & quantitative nature, developing educational materials including online databases and conducting in depth evaluations focusing on measurable impact.
We engage statutory local, regional and national organisations, and have a good grasp of the regional approach to Youth Entrepreneurship, as well as access to a number of the statutory
organisations who make policy decisions on Youth entrepreneurship. Social contexts include disadvantaged groups of learners, integration of ethnic communities, active citizenship and intergenerational learning. We have access to many groups of older and young people and will draw our target beneficiaries from Higher Education (via two local universities), local Secondary schools and Youth groups. As a social enterprise we are keen to engage local Teachers, Youth workers and Young people who are interested in this area.
