WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO
ASPIRA of Florida develops the leadership capacity of its youth by engaging them in weekly leadership club meetings guided by a curriculum designed to develop cultural and self awareness, as well as critical thinking and social skills. This is known as the ASPIRA Process of Leadership Development. ASPIRA of Florida provides youth with a variety of leadership development opportunities facilitated by its staff of young professionals who can relate to the needs of our youth, and provide educational services in a culturally competent and youth-focused manner.
ASPIRA of Florida's vision is to establish programs to serve Puerto Rican/Latino and other disadvantaged youth throughout the State of Florida. ASPIRA’s services are sought out by our target population and are a direct response to its expressed needs. In pursuing this vision, ASPIRA of Florida has already established educational programs and institutions in Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach Counties. ASPIRA envisions establishing a major presence in selected communities across the state by the year 2002, and in so doing, become the first choice of funders of youth programs in the State of Florida. This vision can only be made possible by our dedication to the population we serve and our commitment to excellence. ASPIRA of Florida pledges to deliver quality services to our youth in leadership and academic development. We strive each day to make this vision a reality.
