ASAP COLLABORATES WITH SCHOOLS LOCAL BUSINESSES AND COMMUNITY LEADERS TO MENTOR AND CHALLENGE THE YOUTH IN THE COMMUNITIES WE SERVE.
ASAP OHIO was founded by Jim Surace over 15 years ago, Philanthropist and CEO of Surace-Smith Insurance Group and Tom Hare, Executive Director of HarvestNet (a Networking Group serving NE Ohio). ASAP OHIO was birthed based on the premise of providing positive programs that serve NE Ohio Schools to encourage healthy and productive lifestyles and mindsets and positive mentorship with today’s youth who will in turn be tomorrow’s leaders. As a result of positive fruit in the lives of youth who participated ASAP Ohio over the years, Jim Surace and the ASAP Executive Team were inspired to make a shift from ASAP Ohio to ASAP America. This shift, now is now being implemented with hope and a strategy to reach beyond the youth of Ohio to the youth of America.
