Education and Training Beyond High School
ASPIRE is a mentoring program that matches trained and supportive adult volunteer mentors with middle and high school students to develop a plan to help them meet their education goals beyond high school.
Today’s students may not have the good fortune to have someone to help them figure out what to do after high school, let alone the myriad of education and training options. If you have a desire to help students explore college options, admissions, and financial aid, ASPIRE is for you. Become one of our trained and supportive adult volunteer mentors and work one-on-one with students throughout the year.
It’s no surprise that the cost of a postsecondary education, whether it’s a vocational, four-year, or graduate program, is steadily increasing and becoming a greater financial burden to Oregon students and families. The Office of Student Access and Completion (OSAC) can help. Through grant programs, scholarships, precollege mentoring, and financial aid outreach programs, OSAC assists Oregonians in their pursuit of a college education and a brighter future.
