Youth Programs

After school programs, summer learning camps, and youth leadership programs use Ascend’s digital software platform to improve efficiency, increase transparency in program outcomes, and scale programming to reach and serve more youth.

Efficient Content Management

Get Organized, Go Digital

Organize curriculum, youth activities, assignments, and data all in one place

  • Create virtual “challenges” for students to complete. Challenges can be sent to all youth or specific groups based upon programming
  • Offer reflective questions for students to answer within the platform. Ask students to provide documentation of their actions and completion of their tasks through drag-n-drop document uploads
  • Track and manage student completion of tasks and documentation

Increased Transparency

See Change

Access real-time data on program engagement and outcomes

  • Quickly understand how many students have completed their challenges, view student responses, and access student documentation
  • Gather and view both quantitative and qualitative data to identify program successes and gaps, youth needs, and future opportunities
  • Easily report on program progress and outcomes to funding partners and stakeholders

Scale Programming

Adapt, Scale, Connect

Foster a digital community for youth, mentors, program staff, and families

  • Expand program offerings and reach through virtual lessons and activities that students can do in-person or at-home
  • Connect with youth and families digitally for increased communication and trackable, qualifiable data
  • Track and support student assignments and personal goals to improve the quality of connections and identify program opportunities

What Our Partners Say

“All around, the platform will give us a new perspective on our business and what we’re doing. The Dottie Rose Foundation has done really well these past few years, but we’re moving into the third year and we need to focus on what’s working and what will continue to grow. We’re finding a space for young women and we have to move with them. The girls who are in elementary school now will come in with a different experience than my current campers. And as they do, we’ll have the data to know what’s working.”

CEO & Founder, Dottie Rose Foundation
