About ASA

Changing the future for 15 million kids



We aspire to help students know themselves, know their options, and make informed decisions about their education and career goals early in life. Our overall objective is to build a generation of successful individuals who are confident, competent, and ready to realize the future they envision.

A national non-profit, American Student Assistance (ASA) has been pioneering solutions to help students for more than 60 years. Since 2018, we’ve been building a new digital ecosystem of platforms and partners that is revolutionizing the school-to-work journey for every kid in America, starting in middle school.



Our extensive engagement and ongoing research helps us create actionable insights and innovative solutions that meet kids on their terms.

Extending our reach through strategic investments in funds and private companies aligned with our mission and financial goals.

Providing grants to the innovative nonprofits and community-based organizations who share our vision.

By building a new digital ecosystem of platforms and partners that gives kids new, more impactful ways to explore their future careers.

Advocating across the nation for the policies and resources kids need.



As a mission-driven, public-purpose organization, ASA’s greatest strategic asset is our people. Our future success and our ability to provide equitable access to information and opportunity is dependent on attracting and retaining a diverse workforce that can recognize and leverage our individual and collective strengths.
