Mission Statement

Aspire Education Project dedicates itself to the academic excellence of students in the San Francisco Bay Area through building relationships, encouraging academic engagement, and empowering those we teach to educate others.

Description

More than homework help. Real results. Real growth.

Future success starts with good grades, but it continues with educational mentorship. Not only do we empower our students to meaningfully better their grades, we prepare them to be successful in the next stage of their educational career. In each and every session, we equip them with the skills to become independent active learners and communicators. "If you use us, soon you won't even need us." That impact is perhaps most felt in our Community Reading Buddies program in which all our teenage students are invited to be trained in emotional intelligence and communication skills and mobilized to mentor a younger student in literacy.

1:1 Impact: Through revenues from tutoring and donations Aspire puts resources towards achieving educational equity and providing scholarships to under resourced students in Oakland and San Francisco last year achieving a ratio of 1:1 in one-on-one tutoring providing one hour scholarship for every paid hour of tutoring. The more private tutoring we have, the more we're not only able to provide more scholarship hours, but keep the costs for those programs for underserved students at an affordable rate.
