We’re excited to welcome Aspire! Afterschool to the community of organizations using the AmeriCorps Impact Suite to help young people fulfill their potential through afterschool and summer learning programs.
Arlington, Virginia-based Aspire! serves young people in grades 3-5, transitional years in preparation for middle school, when students must strengthen their literacy skills or be left behind.
Aspire! will be using the Impact Suite with its flagship Learning ROCKS! Program, supporting upper-elementary students’ general academic achievement and social-emotional development. The program places an especially heavy emphasis on helping students to develop both their reading skills and a love of reading.
Since 2009, the organization’s AmeriCorps members have contributed nearly 100,000 hours of service. AmeriCorps members play key roles in the Learning ROCKS! Program while also providing support services at school and at home.
