Because better education builds communities, increases economic potential and enriches lives, Aspire Education Project seeks to extend the best of academic support to all students, primarily K-12. Our educators model lifelong learning and empower those they teach to educate others, magnifying our efforts to enrich our communities.
Aspire Education Project is an educational nonprofit serving East Bay families and schools. Aspire took off to a running start in the fall of 2005, drawing from our founding director Matthew Hulse's 15 years experience as an educator with a thriving private tutoring business. We began by offering a selection of services including the Piedmont After-School Program and at-home tutoring and standardized test training. We recently secured our 501(c)3 exempt status retroactive to June 26, 2006 and have detailed plans to expand the type of educational services we offer and broaden our geographic reach throughout the East Bay over the course of the next three years. We currently run an after-school center at Bentley Upper School in Lafayette, CA and are planning a group of centers focusing on K-8 schools in Oakland and Berkeley. We now run Community Reading Buddies, a program that exemplifies Aspire's philosophy of an integrated approach to community learning. Each summer over a hundred junior high and high school students volunteer to spend three hours a week over two months with 100 preschool through 4 th graders at Oakland's Centro Infantil de la Raza.
