Aspire Education believes that education is the cornerstone of community. Aspire trains students to attain it through a dual curriculum of private tutoring for students, regardless of their ability to pay, and afterschool study halls and test-prep classes for groups. Professional tutors work with youth in a variety of subjects, including math, chemistry, writing, and foreign languages. But these lessons go beyond basic study sessions—tutors build relationships with students while teaching them about mitochondria and how to craft a persuasive argument. Their primary mission, along with helping kids succeed in school, is to transform them into lifelong learners and to inspire new educators.
For the past two decades, Aspire's community reading-buddies program has also been leading the charge for education by working to improve literacy rates. Through this program, high-school and middle-school students receive pedagogical training and act as one-on-one mentors for preschoolers, blending reading activities and games into regular lessons.
