Ascend at the Aspen Institute is a hub for breakthrough ideas and proven strategies that move parents, especially women, and their children beyond poverty toward educational success and economic security. The program focuses on three key areas – education, economics, and social capital – to:
- Spark a new conversation around low-income families
- Build a network of leaders and political will
- Elevate two-generation policies and community solutions
Ascend elevates “two-generation approaches,” which provide opportunities for and meet the needs of vulnerable parents and their children together.
