Post High School Education for Everyone

You may or may not know what you want to do after high school. Whether you want to be a painter or a doctor, a cosmetologist or a lawyer, a truck driver or a web designer, you will most likely need more schooling to reach your career goals. A.S.P.I.R.E. is here to help you get to where you want to go.

We do our best to make sure that every junior and senior who sign up will be assigned an A.S.P.I.R.E. mentor. The A.S.P.I.R.E. program trains volunteers from the community to help you think about career goals and access education and training beyond high school. If you or someone you know is interested in volunteering check out the ASPIRE website   These volunteers want to help you have a successful transition into your preferred field after high school graduation.

We consistently champion the promise of postsecondary education to all Americans-and its value to our society.

www.schoolgrantsblog.com  School Grants is a group comprised of teachers and students who understand how important education grants are to most people. The cost of higher education is beyond the average person's reach, and we feel that no one should have to pay out-of-pocket for their entire college education. No one should have to put off schooling because of their current financial situation. Whether you're a single mom or someone who's fresh out of high school, money issues shouldn't affect your ability to obtain the degree you want. It's their mission to help people get the grants they deserve, so they can further their education; this is why they're working for you 24 hours per day, seven days per week.
