OUR PROGRAMS ARE CONDUCTED USING A SYSTEM THAT IS BROKEN DOWN INTO THREE COMPONENTS: ACTIVE, SOCIAL AND EDUCATION. WE BELIEVE A YOUTH’S UTMOST AND OVERALL SUCCESS IS CONTINGENT TO THE GROWTH IN ALL THREE COMPONENTS AS A WHOLE.
Our mission and goal in the ACTIVE component is to engage our youth to be both mentally and physically active in pursing their goals. It is important in the beginning stages of the program to develop the youth to think critically in what they say and do. Thinking critically brings forth engagement which allows the youth to be more involved and focus deeper on what it is that they wish to achieve.
Active: Engaging or ready to engage in physically energetic pursuits.
Synonyms: Lively – live – brisk – energetic –operative
Our mission and goal in the SOCIAL component is to create a support system for the youth as well as for their goal. It is important for the youth to surround themselves with other individuals who will be positive influences. Much like the active component, the social component also involves engagement where the youth learn how to socially involve themselves and network and create a support system in order to achieve success.
Social: Of or relating to society or its organization
Synonyms: sociable – gregarious – companionable – public
Our mission and goal in the EDUCATION COMPONENT is to educate youth that knowledge can be gained through different means. Education is concealed and the cornerstone of each component because essentially the youth are educating themselves physically, socially and academically. In the beginning it is important to provide youth with the proper tools and resources so that they may expand their knowledge but it is more important to teach them the life skills of how to find these things on their own. It is education that helps us simplify our path way towards our goal and develop a rational approach in carrying out each step. When we are educated especially within each component of the ASE system we increase the chances of success.
Education: The process of receiving or giving systematic instruction
Synonyms: training – schooling – instruction – upbringing – nurture
