Mission

ASCEND Leadership serves young people by helping them develop into engaged and authentic leaders. We work to provide the tools, training and challenging experiences necessary to foster continuous success in the classroom and beyond as they construct healthy lives and relationships.


ASCEND Leadership supports a diverse and wide range of age groups, schools, teachers, and staff.

ASCEND Leaders set out on a new trajectory that transforms the way that they think, act, and engage by fostering deep personal growth and taking responsibility for the world around them.

Our goal is to offer opportunities that position students to be prepared for and successful in a complex life and work environment through the 21st century classroom. ASLeaders use these skills to bring positive change to their community.

We work to support the transformation of classroom competency development into skills for life, foster creativity and innovation, critical thinking, communication, and meaningful collaboration skills through experiential learning.

ASL is an innovative opportunity, approach, and program support.

LEADERS & ENTREPRENEURSHIP

Albert Einstein once said,

“The leader is one who,

out of the clutter, brings simplicity…

out of discord, harmony…

and out of difficulty, opportunity."

A natural expression of the leadership competency is engagement in entrepreneurship. ASCEND Leadership has been awarded grants for many different student created and led initiatives impacting the school community.

ASCEND Leaders are acquiring the skills required of the next generation of successful community and business leaders.

PARTNERS IN LEADERSHIP

If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together. - African Proverb



In my private life, I have been a parent-volunteer to this program while my daughter was attending high school, and even though my daughter graduated a few years ago, I remained part of the ASCEND Leadership family but now as a Consultant/Mentor. The life experiences that I have been exposed to leadership though my association with the ASL is beyond words. To be able to be part of a family of so many great individuals with a common thread (developing our youth to become exceptional leaders) has been, and continues to be, an incredible feeling of accomplishment. I am forever grateful to the ASL family."

George Papathanasopoulos

Parent, Community Leader, Human Resource Manager
