Inspire. Uplift. Engage.
The Ashe Academy believes that the nation has the untapped potential to increase the number of people of color not only in Arts & STEM fields of study but the representation in their respective professions. We can make a difference by coming together and taking action. Participate in the following programs and initiatives:
The Ashe Academy Mentorship Program fosters a relationship of sharing ideas and perspectives while guiding students as they gain experience and build their professional network. Mentors and Students are paired based on the respective industry pursued (ARTS or STEM), interests, and geographic region. Mentors and students build meaningful relationships that can lead to the student becoming part of the mentor’s community while expanding the student’s circle of academic and professional support. Mentors are screened, trained and evaluated with expectation excellence. If you’re a distinguished member of your industry looking to give back to the next generation, learn more about becoming a Mentor today!
Parents and Guardians play an integral role in their child’s successes from personal, academic, and even professional. Our Parental Engagement Program aims to bring families, schools, community leaders, and businesses together to support the advancement of students of color as they move on to higher education from a parent’s point of view. This Program empowers every parent to make their child’s potential a reality through financial planning, and mental health resources. Traditional family engagement practices don’t always meet the needs of each and every family, nor treat them as equal partners in ensuring their child’s success so we’re here to fill in the gap.
The ASHE Academy Scholarship Program is a merit and need-based scholarship awarded to graduating high school seniors of color pursuing degrees in the ARTS or STEM. Students are acknowledged for their demonstrated ability to make a significant impact on their community, desire to learn and coachability. Starting in 2020 scholars will be selected each year to receive a scholarship award. Learn More Here.
