How does the ASPIRE program help?

Your youth will meet individually with a Success Coach during the school day for support with academic, social, and emotional goals. After-school groups are offered at each school 3-4 days per week and are an opportunity for your child to socialize and learn new skills. ASPIRE groups use fun and creativity to teach important life skills such as communication, healthy relationships and boundaries, managing stress and anxiety, and preventing substance use.

ASPIRE also holds family events that provide opportunities for all ASPIRE families to come together to enjoy good food and good company. Some events bring the whole family together. At other events, adults will learn about a topic impacting their youth while children enjoy games and other enriching activities.
