Afterschool and summer programs for at risk children and youth

The Reading Connection

Please Join Us!

As a like-minded partner of the now closed The Reading Connection, Aspire! believes in the value of reading to children. At Aspire!, we hope and intend to extend the legacy developed by The Reading Connection by continuing programmatic work like the Read Aloud program

We hope you will join Aspire! as we build on the legacy of The Reading Connection. You can sign up for our mailing list or to volunteer.  

​We can't do it without your help.

Our History of Partnering

Our work has been synergistic. In one of our shared sites, Virginia Gardens Apartments, on the evenings when Aspire! would provide our Parent Connection program to adults, The Reading Connection volunteers were reading to their children. We hope to continue this kind of programming at this site and others in Arlington. Will you help us?
