The mission of Ascend Mentoring is to provide a holistic model of mentoring and support services that result in youth and families strengthening competencies and reaching their full potential. Ascend is a community based organization that empowers at-risk youth to develop positive self-esteem and improve their lives by working with community mentors. Their full range of services provide the tools and support for youth and families to lead stable, productive, enjoyable lives and contribute positively to the Greater Hartford community.
Ascend serves youth between the ages of 12-18 that have been defined by a school/parent/guardian/social worker as at-risk of dropping out of school and/or entering or becoming involved with the juvenile justice system. Ascend also provides services for youth that could benefit from participating in positive programs besides what their school already offers. They provide a multitude of support services through strategic partnerships for the families of participants around three main areas: employment services, mental health, and financial planning.
