Aspire believes representation matters and students thrive when they build positive connections with staff, AmeriCorps members, and volunteers who reflect the rich diversity, cultural backgrounds, and many languages of our students and families. Aspire commits to furthering our equity and access values by developing, attracting, and retaining a diverse team and creating pathways for employment for former students and members of the communities we serve.

Learn more about how we live our values on our About Us page and our focus areas through our current strategic plan.

We are always looking to recruit AmeriCorps members and staff with diverse language backgrounds. 74% of our students come from non-English speaking households, and we’re always recruiting AmeriCorps members and staff who can speak with them in their own language to enrich their learning experiences.
