VOLUNTEER MENTOR OPPORTUNITY WITH THE ASPIRE PROGRAM
ASPIRE Mentor Lindsay Murray McLaughlin going over post high school options with Danielle R., a Phoenix Charter School senior.
Phoenix School is currently seeking ASPIRE mentors for our students. ASPIRE is a college and career mentoring program that pairs adults in the community with high school students to help them plan for their future beyond high school. ASPIRE is a free program of the Office of Student Access and Completion (OSAC) and its objective is to provide the necessary tools and guidance to the students of Oregon to assist them in reaching their post-secondary goals.
ASPIRE helps student participants to explore all options beyond high school including: career, college, military, technical schools, the Peace Corps, and AmeriCorps. ASPIRE mentors will also assist their ASPIRE mentee with setting goals, staying on track of them, and looking for scholarships and financial aid resources.
ASPIRE mentors are trained and provided resources to support students, who they meet with weekly or biweekly. On average ASPIRE mentors have two or more student mentees and each meeting is approximately a half hour.
If you would like to be involved as a student participant or as a volunteer mentor, please contact Melissa Cornejo, the ASPIRE Volunteer Coordinator by phone (541) 673-3036 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our next one hour training for ASPIRE mentors will be held 02/29/16 at 10:30am at Phoenix School, if you’d like to attend please contact Melissa to RSVP.
