ASPIRE is Oregon’s statewide career and college readiness program that offers education, resources, and mentoring to students.
ASPIRE sites are located across the State of Oregon in high schools, middle schools, and community-based organization. Each ASPIRE site offers support to students to reach their career and college goals. Elements of the program include:
ASPIRE sites develop their programs based on the needs and current goals of the students they serve. We encourage students to connect with your local ASPIRE Coordinator to receive assistance with your career and college goals.
If your school/community does not yet have an ASPIRE program, encourage local leaders to reach out to establish a local ASPIRE program. Training, coaching, resources and even funding is available to establish new programs throughout the state.
