Alternative School of Knowledge (ASK) Academy is a volunteer and grassroots organization, founded in 2004 by Shakeel Ali and Amro Radwan. We recruit teachers, youth development workers, and business owners to help schools and surrounding communities to create a safe and welcoming environment along with supporting equitable learning and progressive social justice. We are driven to help at-risk students to stay and succeed in school and life after graduation. By using education, economics, and entertainment to help students cope with crime, drugs, poverty, and violence, we are not only able to decrease drop out rates, but also provide the best tools and techniques for preventing bullying and cyberbullying. Our goal is to improve the lives of our most vulnerable youth from Kindergarten to High School through retention and redirection.
