"To innovate" means to create a new solution to an existing challenge. At AST, we constantly strive to find ever new ways to connect people and communities across geographical and cultural boundaries, and to help them work together to promote peace and prosperity in the 21. Century. By focusing on post-secondary education, and by sharing our lives, values and experiences in Canada with our students, we are developing ever new ways to reach out to them, whilst at the same time giving these students the opportunity to put into practice their own visions and ideas of a better life for them, their families, their communities.
