Dr. Susan Finley, Associate Professor of Education at Washington State University Vancouver is the Founding Director of AHAS. The AHAS curriculum design introduced by Susan Finley is based in the concepts of empowerment and democratic education and utilizes hands-on and arts-integrated learning approaches in all of its programs. The AHAS umbrella of programs began in 2002 with the AHAS Summer Program and the project to offer tutoring in shelters. Teachers in AHAS programs are guided by the educational theories of critical pedagogy conceptualized in the works of Paulo Freire.
