Ascend is a student goal-setting platform that enables schools and mentoring organizations to cultivate, track, and measure student goals and achievement. Ascend recently launched a free version of its platform called Challenge Accepted! in response to school closures. The program is a way for students ages 14+ to get rewarded for completing simple challenges they can do while at home, ranging from completing a Khan Academy coding course to cooking a new recipe to writing notes of gratitude. Through the completion of small goals they can complete throughout their days, students earn points that give them the chance to win money for college scholarships. For more
