Girls proactively shape and serve their communities, fostering strong civil societies. They come to understand the importance of giving back and become familiar with organizations in their communities providing service. They are empowered by sharing their strength and knowledge with others.
Ascend participants all learn and practice the power of volunteering. Participants work with instructors to design appropriate projects that align with community priorities. Ascend girls are receiving valuable training, and giving to others to amplify impact and model community leadership. Projects include teaching sports at an orphanage, teaching literacy to adult women, leading neighborhood cleanup campaigns, and working with municipal authorities to create public art encouraging environmental responsibilities.
