After a year of mentorship and months of preparation, YLP girls show us how it's done!

Inspired after our month with The Genki Spark, the YLP girls and mentors have been spending April preparing for the ASPIRE Youth Leadership Program final showcase on June 18th! The vision and program for the showcase is entirely directed by the YLP participants and will include their reflections on their family migration stories and their personal takeaways from the program.

It was a wonderful night.

March 8th was our first Meet & Greet event, and what a wonderful turnout it was. With almost 60 RSVPs, and more than 20 new faces in attendance interested in learning about ASPIRE and finding out how they could join. Team Members introduced ourselves and shared ASPIRE’s new goals. 

If you weren't able to attend and want to learn about Volunteering opportunities, you can watch the recording here  and view the slides here . We spoke about our Youth Leadership Program  (YLP) and launching a new Mentorship Program , and then broke out into groups to meet and learn about one another. We loved everyone's enthusiasm and ideas!


We are also excited for several of these attendees to join us as new Team Members:

Grace Abe - Visual Design Manager, Marketing Team

Melanie Liu - Communications Manager, Marketing Team

Nischa Xiong - Mentorship Program Coordinator, Mentorship Program Team

Sheila Yang - Donor Relations Manager, Fundraising Team

We'll be introducing more new team members in the next few weeks. Together, during the past team retreat and meetings, we will be preparing for our May Fitness Series and other exciting events. Stay tuned for more details!


We are still recruiting team and Board members--particularly a YLP Board Liaison and Director and volunteers, Marketing Board Liaison, Co-Chair, and Mentorship Program volunteers. If you or anyone you know would be interested, please email us at board@girlsaspire.org.

I have finally decided to take the plunge and add a blog to my site. I always wanted an easy way to share information with visitors and I’m super excited to start this journey. Keep coming back to my site and check for updates right here on the blog.
