ASA’s mission is to help kids know themselves, know their options, and make informed choices to achieve their education and career goals.
Typically, the first remarks from people just hearing about ASA go something like: “Wish I had that growing up.” We think so too, that’s why we’re rewriting a future where the kids of today don’t have to say that as the adults of tomorrow. And not through the classroom, but through mobile-first digital experiences that kids choose to engage with on their own time.
As a well-funded, non-profit we have the resources to perform in-depth research with kids, create large-scale, truly innovative solutions and build strategic and impactful engagement with millions of kids. And because we can’t do it alone, we’re also investing in private companies and funds who are aligned with our values to amplify our impact.
