Learner instructions for the AscentUP program

Updated over a week ago

AscentUP employer projects are an exclusive program for AscentUP learners.

1. The AscentUP team and your program coaches will create your employer project teams - each with five learners. You will then be matched with a digital tech employer project.

2. Each team member will receive an email inviting you to set up your Riipen account and join the AscentUP portal. Complete the below fields and click ‘’Create account”.

3. Once in the AscentUP portal, you will be able to view the details of your team’s project. First, you need to formally agree to the AscentUP Terms and Conditions. Digitally sign the program T&Cs and you will then be prompted to accept your invitation to join your team.

4. Clicking on your initials avatar in the top right corner, you can edit your learner profile. Add your pronouns (optional), location, and choose up to 5 categories that interest you (ex: Web Development, Product Management, UX/UI design, etc.) You can further personalize your profile by including a photo, your bio, and uploading your resume. This will be shared with employers when you are working on their project.

5. Once your profile is set up, select “My projects” from the left navigation, and click on your team.

6. You’re now all set to begin working on your AscentUP internship project! Click “Start project” and send a welcome message to the employer.
