Program Description:
ASPIRA, Inc. of Pennsylvania primarily serves the at-risk minorities of North Philadelphia. To address the low academic attainment of youth in Philadelphia, ASPIRA of PA began its hallmark Leadership Development program in 1969, which remains active in several schools today. We have added several other programs, such as TRIO Educational Talent Search, afterschool programs, summer camps, EPIC Stakeholders, and courses for parents. ASPIRA of PA currently manages sixteen (16) educational programs.
Mission Statement:
ASPIRA of PA is a community-based organization whose mission is to empower Puerto Ricans and other Latinos through advocacy and the education and leadership development of its youth. Because of ASPIRA of PA's proven success, we have grown and have been enabled to serve many communities in need.
