"To anyone that carries a heart for young people, teaching SRAE on a regular basis, you know the battle. It is intense and you need to know you're not alone. Membership with Ascend is a dependable presence of hope, help and partnership. I don't know of any other organization that places such a high priority on fostering connection and encouragement to their members. Don't miss out. Join today."
Cindy Janczik, BSN, Program Director, Penn's Youth Initiative, Inc.
"As a member of Ascend, I have become more thoughtful and concise when defending SRAE on local political platforms, as well as giving me insights to be more relevant with their Trending tips. I also value being a part of the Touchpoint sessions (for members) where we critically review and discuss what’s happening in the current teen landscape so we, as SRA educators can address student’s needs better."
Leslie A. Moyer, M.Ed., Director of Educational Program, Morning Star Clinics/Unfiltered-Truth
"If you have or are starting an SRA program, I highly recommend having Ascend in your corner. They are both a great resource and partner to our program."
