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.
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
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.
