The original First Impressions program, developed in the 1990s by Andrew Lewis, University of Wisconsin, Cooperative Extension, and James Schneider, has undergone a variety of changes according to audience, place, and purpose. Each location has its own needs, challenges, population, and unique characteristics that should be encompassed in a meaningful assessment.  In this webinar, presenters will share more of the innovative adaptations that have been developed  to ensure program participants receive a valuable, relevant assessment of their communities, Main Streets and urban neighborhoods, and how youth and Millennials are included in the process.
