BACKGROUND / DESCRIPTION OF PLATFORM (PURPOSE / MISSION)
The Edge platform or website is powered by ASU. Edge is made possible through generous support from the Schultz Family Foundation. Edge exists to provide youth with an engaging, accessible, professional skills training that flexibly supports job attainment, career advancement, and personal development. Edge training focuses on customer service, leadership, and personal development. Through this training, youth beginning or in the early stages of their first job will be better equipped to serve. In turn, managers will be able to recruit and retain employees more ready for their first job.
Users of Edge will complete trainings on a compatible device through the platform or mobile application. Through completing these trainings, Users will gain new knowledge and skills while molding their mindset as they launch their careers. Edge is made available for free to all Users. Edge is utilized by individual Users accessing it independently as well as through strategic partnerships and integrations with existing programs and organizations.
The "Edge" trademark, course content and the trade dress of the Edge website are owned by the Schultz Family Foundation. The Edge website is powered by ASU and the platform is owned by ASU.
ASU is a comprehensive public research university, measured not by whom it excludes, but by whom it includes and how they succeed; advancing research and discovery of public value; and assuming fundamental responsibility for the economic, social, cultural and overall health of the communities it serves. These Terms reflect the goal of ASU to foster academic freedom while respecting the principles of freedom of speech and the privacy rights of Users.
ABOUT SCHULTZ FAMILY FOUNDATION
We are witnessing a fundamental breakdown of the American Dream. Division. Hate. Exclusion. These have replaced respect, mobility, and compassion at the core of our country, leaving our nation at risk.
Now, we must all ask ourselves:
Will we allow one's place in life to be determined by the zip code of one's birth?
Will we turn our backs on those who have served our country, yet find decent work out of reach?
Will we settle for an America where only a few have access to first starts?
We all share the same dreams-to love and be loved, to find and pursue our purpose and to provide for our families. Yet, we are living in an America where potential is within all of us, but opportunity is not.
The Schultz Family Foundation is committed to lifting the human spirit and bringing possibility to everyone, regardless of skin color, religion, sexual orientation, gender, or station in life. We see our nation's challenges, but we also see solutions. If we work together to unlock potential across our communities, we can build a nation that lives up to its promise.
