A.S.P.I.R.E Organization put a smile on my boys JC/TJ Jackson face and a peace in my heart as a mother regarding the organization.

Joining and being apart for the years that we were in Texas ( for the sports and schooling) my boys have become stronger, humbled and know that they can achieve anything good that they put their ❤ too.

My boys and I are now living in California and we wish that A.S.P.I.R.E was in California as well in Texas.

My overall view too me is that they are a 5 Star Experience for building up, encouraging, teaching, discipline, focusing and helping your team.

It have always been the goal of our organization to provide high quality educational and recreational opportunities for all students. We have been able to successfully provides these services because of the volunteers, donors, and strong organizational structure. We are planning to go forward with the design of our school, taking our students into the future as we build and learn together. Please join us! As A board member, certified teacher, and donor I have been with ASPIRE since the beginning. I will continue to support this organization until we reach our goal.

As President & CEO of A.S.P.I.R.E., of course my review may be just a little biased, but I am amazed at the accomplishments we have achieved despite being a smaller organization. If it were not for the blessings of God, the volunteers who dedicated their time on numerous occasions, and the supportive parents, we never would have been able to serve the youth in such a capacity. When most grants and donations were being awarded to larger, more well known organizations, A.S.P.I.R.E. had to learn how to operate its services with only the donations of its founders and board members, and revenue from program fees. We exceeded our expectations and were able to expand our services far sooner than planned.

Now that we have been blessed with a donation of land and buildings to call our own, we are faced with a new set of challenges. As in the past, I know that we will not only meet but exceed our goals as we revise and grow. ~Ask, Seek, Praise, Intercede, Receive, Edify~

A few years ago our family found out about A.S.P.I.R.E. Sports when we saw an ad in a local publication. We had been looking for an affordable, non-competitive basketball league for our young son who had never played the game. From the first time we met Coach Mitch and Coach Erisha, we knew the organization was truly special. They welcomed us immediately. Their dedication to family and faith is evident and resonates in every part of the organization. Both of them are always ready to answer our questions and assist us in all matters regarding the league. We appreciate that the practice and game schedule is never overbearing. The standards set for coaches and court etiquette is above reproach. Our son loves the league and grows more each season because of the skillful guidance of the team coaches. We thank God for A.S.P.I.R.E. and pray the organization will have continued growth, support, and success as they provide services and meet the needs of the community.

I will always be grateful for the relationship I have with A.S.P.I.R.E. My husband and I were originally only looking at the Soccer program for our youngest son. We were pleasantly surprised to find out not only did they have an excellent athletic program but they also offered a tutoring program.

My oldest son entered into the tutoring program and his grades and state test scores improved dramatically. It was so comforting to know that the organization was centered around establishing the well-being of both the body and the mind. I highly recommend A.S.P.I.R.E.

Purely by accident, I came across A.S.P.I.R.E. nearly 4 years ago and it took me all of 10 minutes to make the decision to do anything I could to help this wonderful organization grow and succeed. Their approach of reaching at-risk youth through sports and education and then wrapping caring, family-oriented volunteers and coaches around them is something that I have never seen. It works! I have personally seen troubled boys and girls evolve into caring and intelligent young people so many times that I cannot count them. I have seen parents who were struggling just to get by, smile and laugh when they brought their children to games. I have seen volunteers give countless hours of their lives to reach troubled youth and transform them.

This is a wonderful organization and I have been blessed to be just a small part of it.
