Prepare Your Child to Think Sustainably
Ascend Now’s Sustainability Course gives children the opportunity to develop a mindset to think holistically and create a wider impact in society. We create a safe and comfortable one-to-one learning environment that allows students to share their experiences, brainstorm new ideas and execute exciting projects that make their community sustainable.
Educating children about sustainability at a young age is vital because children have an innate flexibility when it comes to their actions and beliefs. The first step is information. Children can’t make an informed decision without the information! Once they’ve learned about globally accepted sustainability principles around the world, it is time for them to decide how they are going to contribute.
This could be through an awareness campaign, tree-planting initiative, recycling project and many more. Giving them a tangible goal to work towards will empower them, motivate them and look fantastic on a college application. Our goal with the sustainability program is to instill passion in students towards the environment and make them ambassadors to further influence the people around them.
Benefit of Ascend Now's Sustainability Program
The curriculum of the Sustainability Course for Kids at Ascend Now is highly intensive. After the initial few sessions, students will brainstorm their capstone project and start putting together timelines, milestones and a small budget to achieve their goals. Through this process they learn fundamental skills such as proactivity, critical thinking and communication.
The program deals with waste, energy, eco-friendly consumption, empowerment and awareness.
Through the program, students will gain access to –
- 1-1 coaching with industry experts: Coaches who understand the objectives of both parents and students and are experts at guiding students in their execution of sustainability projects. The coach plays the role of a mentor, collaborator, educator and partner.
