In Dallas today, thousands of adults are not able to reach their potential due to their limited ability to speak and write English. Aspire volunteers and students share an amazing experience as both parties participate in learning. Students have a deep desire to improve and volunteers get the joy of experiencing personal growth while watching their students grow.

Join us as we work together to help make a lasting mark in people’s lives. 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.

  • Must be fluent in English and easy to understand

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.
