ASPIRE Fall Conference Pre-Registration

Each fall, ASPIRE coordinators and volunteers from throughout the state attend a one-day conference designed to allow participants to expand their knowledge of the ASPIRE program, network with other ASPIRE coordinators and volunteers, as well as explore postsecondary options for Oregon students. Experts present workshops on a variety of topics that pertain to the work of ASPIRE mentors.
