    ASPIRE staff and volunteers help students and their families by:

    • Exploring available education and training options beyond high school
    • Developing a post-high school plan with the student
    • Assisting students with their essays and applications
    • Keeping students on track to meet deadlines
    • Giving advice about all postsecondary options
    • Providing direction to scholarship and financial aid resources

    MENTORS, If you are interested in becoming an ASPIRE mentor, please contact Patty.  ASPIRE is a mentoring program that matches trained and supportive adult volunteer mentors with high school students to develop a plan to help them meet their education goals beyond high school. 

    Why become an ASPIRE mentor?

    STUDENTS, There are two forms you must complete to be a part of the ASPIRE program:
    The first is the permission form with a parent signature stating the students can meet with a mentor for guidance.
    The second is our own "in house" form that gives us a better idea of what the student may be looking for.
