“The Red Sox Foundation is honored to work with American Student Assistance as the Official Workforce Development Partner of our Red Sox Scholars program this year. We are committed to making a difference in the lives of youth, and one way that we’ve been able to achieve our mission is by providing greater educational opportunities through our Red Sox Scholars program. With the added expertise and support of American Student Assistance, we are excited to further strengthen the academic, professional, and social support for our students from middle school through college.”

Jay Ash, Secretary, Executive Office of Housing and Economic Development

“ASA’s new mission directly supports the work we are doing through the Workforce Skills Cabinet to better align education and training systems to job growth and expansion in Massachusetts.

Karen Crebase, Superintendent of Schools, Hopedale, Massachusetts

“ASA is recognizing an important need by helping kids start to explore college and career options at an early age. Hopedale is thrilled to be partnering with ASA to provide our middle school students with a grant to fund STEAM education, teaching engineering, robotics, sensor input, animation, and many other standards. Like ASA, we believe that by providing our students with these learning opportunities in seventh and eighth grade, they will make informed decisions about computer science courses during high school and college. By teaming with ASA, Hopedale schools will be at the forefront of preparing our students for careers in computer science, which our business community has identified as a critical need.”

Patreka J. Wood, Director of Academic Advancement & Student Support, Mario Umana Academy

“ASA has been a collaborative partner at the Mario Umana Academy in many ways. They have supported our STEM initiative by organizing and facilitating a Girls Who Code program after school for Umana middle school students. Additionally, they have supported Umana eighth graders with applying to high school by offering after-school essay writing support.”

Elisabeth Talbot, Student Development Counselor, Community Academy of Science and Health

“ASA is a true partner in our work at C.A.S.H., working with the guidance and engagement teams to plan, coordinate, and execute workshops, activities, and field experiences that support the college and career readiness of our students in grades 9-12. ASA provides practical support to students and families in the post-secondary planning process.”
