ASPIRE HandsON! programs allow kids opportunities to try new activities or explore new paths.  We hold events allowing foster and at-risk youth to learn about new activities such as art & music, or sports.   

New to the ASPIRE HandsON! repertoire is a speaker and field trip series for at-risk teens.  These young adults are nearing adulthood and through introduction to new career possibilities we hope to help them find a path to success.

ASPIREKids also holds ASPIRE HandsOn! events that include the whole family. Spending time with other families in similar situations adds to the feeling of normalcy while getting away from the day to day challenges and playing together as a family.
