Student Management

Students are the heartbeat of Oregon’s statewide ASPIRE Program

Supporting students is the most important role of an ASPIRE Coordinator. The ASPIRE program offers education, resources, and/or mentoring opportunities for all students throughout Oregon to become career and college ready. The goal is to create opportunities for students to become confident, ready, and bold in the pursuit of their dreams.
