U.S. unemployment has remained stubbornly high over the past several years, pushing many parents and their children into a state of economic vulnerability—and exacerbating conditions for families who were already poor or low-income prior to the 2008 recession.Learn more
Ascend has created a vibrant and visible network of leaders to build political will for shifts in policies, practices, and resources for low-income families.
The Aspen Institute Ascend Fellowship brings together pioneering leaders who are piloting, replicating, and scaling two-generation approaches, enabling them to share knowledge, coordinate their efforts, and translate groundbreaking ideas into action.
The 2015 Class of Ascend Fellows will be announced in the first quarter of 2015!
Meet the 2012-2013 Ascend Fellows.
