In Dallas today, there are thousands of adults who are not able to reach their potential because they need an alternate pathway to a high school diploma. Aspire volunteers and students share an amazing experience as both parties engage in learning. Students have a deep desire to improve and volunteers get the joy of experiencing their students grow.

We welcome both experienced and novice instructors. If you have not taught adults, we will help you gain the skills to be an effective instructor. We provide curriculum, training, and support.

Instructors will guide and support students as they build core academic knowledge and essential skills necessary for success in most jobs and postsecondary programs in today’s economy.

  • An alternative path to a high school credential
  • Knowledge and skills necessary for success in today’s workplace
  • A safe environment to explore their strengths and weaknesses, academically, and professionally

Mission Statement

Aspire develops confident, capable individuals who value learning programs--from early childhood to adults pursuing careers--as a gateway to a better life.

Description

About Aspire:

LIFT and the Aberg Center for Literacy merged in July 2020, supported by the Better Together Fund. The new merged organization, Aspire, provides cradle to career learning programs for students of all ages - from early childhood to adults pursuing careers.

At Aspire, we believe learning turns obstacles into opportunities. Every day, we walk alongside our students as they make the brave decision to change their lives. From learning English or earning a GED, to balancing a family bank account or preparing for careers, our students face challenges with confidence. Because when you are ready to learn, there’s no obstacle you can’t overcome.
