Where Desire to Aspire is going?
Desire to Aspire plans on continuing to expand nationally and internationally. In addition to our growth in the youth mentoring sector, Desire to Aspire feels that it is also important to work with women, as they are often the foundation of the family and young girls we serve. We feel that to truly build strong girls, we must make sure that their natural role models (i.e. mothers, aunts, grandmothers) have all of the necessary resources to flourish and be great examples. We are working on pairing women with mentors, as well and creating a curriculum that will provide women with necessary skills, resources, and support to flourish no matter what stage of life.
