About Us

ASCENDtials is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit specializing in critical consciousness, by providing thoughtful holistic educative tools, resources, and training programs that prepare, are preventative, and instill and reinforce a deeper appreciation for self and community, a oneness that builds capacity, and environmental care. Since 2014, we have been committed to developing leaders who will chip away at the structures impeding progress to build more systems based on truth, and science, equitable, diverse, fair, and inclusive of communities that hold everyone accountable. We strongly believe in providing support by enhancing, emphasizing, and reinforcing increased problem-solving skills, offering dialogical engagement within familial, academic, and community, and an ongoing relationship building with these parties to increase civic and social competency. The true intent is to bring about self-awareness and create technologies that are good and humane while sustaining constant collaboration with community businesses and leaders to strengthen and secure these ties.
