The Ascend initiative at the Aspen Institute is "a hub for breakthrough ideas and collaborations that move children and their parents toward educational success and economic security." The folks at the Aspen Institute are focused on taking a "two-generation approach" to their work. This idea is outlined in areas that include Our Strategies, The Two-Generation Approach, Resources, and About Us. In the Our Strategies area, visitors can learn about the network the Aspen Institute is building to support the initiative, upcoming events, and related news and media coverage. The Resources area includes documents, fact sheets, and other publications that include "Analyzing Social Capital in Context" and "At What Cost? How Student Debt Reduces Lifetime Wealth." Finally, visitors should read the Two-Generation Approach to learn more about this social policy philosophy.
