The Ascend Network is a national group of practitioners, policymakers, philanthropic leaders, and researchers advancing two-generation approaches for whole-family outcomes. Since the launch of the Ascend Network in 2014, Network Partners have spurred significant shifts in the field through two-generation efforts. The goal of the Aspen Institute’s Ascend Network is to mobilize and activate leaders and organizations to influence policy and practice changes that increase economic security, educational success, social capital, and health and well-being for children, parents, and their families.
To be recognized as an official partner of the Ascend Network, CORE had to demonstrate how its philosophy, program and services encompass the guiding principles of a two-generation approach. Being a member of the Ascend Network is a powerful and special opportunity for CORE leaders to learn and connect with others around the country committed to identifying, developing, and implementing two-generation approaches.
"It’s with great pride that we welcome CORE to the Ascend Network,” said Sarah Haight, associate director of Network & Outreach at Ascend. “The impactful work they are doing right now in Southern Nevada is aligned with our mission and approach. We look forward to furthering ideas and collaborations to help move children and their parents toward educational success and economic security.”
