The Genesis of the Ascension Project

Founded in 2009, The Ascension Project was developed as an online community for those who care deeply about helping boys find equilibrium in their lives. The site was developed by veteran educator and youth advocate Brad Zervas, who recognized the need for a global sounding board for people who share his dedication to boys’ development.

Drawing on his 30 years of leading youth programs, including serving as Executive Director of The Boys’ Club of New York, Mr. Zervas created this site to give educators and youth advocates a channel for exchanging ideas around a single challenge: Helping boys develop with honor and grace.
