ASPIRE

ASPIRE

ASPIRE is a program of the Higher Education Coordinating Commission (HECC), Office of Student Access and Completion (OSAC).  OSAC expands opportunities for Oregonians to complete their higher education and career training goals through information, mentoring and financial aid.     

Waldport High School ASPIRE consists of all volunteer mentors who assist students 1-1 to explore their post-secondary options and create a plan for their future. We support students with a wide range of activities: 

  • Interest and career assessment tools for choosing careers that match student interests and aptitudes
  • Career and job exploration including skills needed, education requirements, job shadowing and internships, and long range career field prospects.
  • Career training resources search including direct job training, vocational training, military, and college choice.
  • Assist with letters, resumes, and applications for jobs, college, scholarship, and internships.
  • Funding for education and training including scholarships and grant, FAFSA, OSAC, and institutional inquiries.

Parental permission is required for a student to participate and the program can include families in the planning process.  Contact the Fighting Irish ASPIRE coordinator for more information:    Peter.Colley@lincoln.k12.or.us
