Ascend Athletics

Ascend Athletics is an organization that supports female mountain climbers through mountaineering-based leadership training and community service projects. They host a two-year leadership program for girls aged 15-24 that focuses on developing strong bodies and minds. Their activities aim to support the mental and physical wellbeing of girls while cultivating values of leadership, teamwork, and an awareness of the environment.

A 2021 grant from the Cultures of Resistance Network supported Ascend Athletics’ work to provide outdoor activities for their Afghan members who had been resettled abroad after the Taliban takeover.
