Alternative Schools Network (ASN) is a not-for-profit organization in Chicago working to provide quality education with a specific emphasis on inner-city children, youth and adults.
Since 1973, ASN has been supporting community based and community-run programs to develop and expand training and other educational services in Chicago’s inner-city neighborhoods. In addition to supporting direct services, ASN has advocated for community based services in which the people involved are active participants in developing and running programs rather than passive recipients of services.
Today ASN helps shape policies and programs, based upon its impressive track record of operating successful education, employment and support service programs.
