ASPIRA of Florida



President-CEO Office

A Message From The President and CEO

As President and CEO of ASPIRA of Florida, Inc., I embrace the opportunity of serving this organization, to which I am deeply committed. The success of ASPIRA is due to the sum of the efforts of the elite staff and volunteers that drive this great organization. We must acknowledge our strengths and the challenges ahead that will be achieved with hard work, dedication and the collective character of our cultural heritage.

We are passionately focusing on diversifying and further enriching our Youth Leadership Development Program in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties. Through creative dissemination strategies, we are refining our approach to ensure that quality resources are available so that at-risk youth may pursue completion of their educational development. Our goal is to increase the number of children we are serving and enhance awareness of our organization.

Central to educational reform are Choice Schools. Since 1998, ASPIRA has been a leader in the charter school movement, operating three successful institutions in Florida. Last year, ASPIRA reached a significant milestone with the purchase of the Arts DE/CO Charter School building. We are eager to take on the responsibility of defining our role as an expanding academic organization in pursuit of educational excellence. This coming year we will begin renovations to modernize this facility and provide students with a superior learning environment.

ASPIRA's future is luminous and ambitious. We were successful in our charter school application to the Palm Beach County School District and plan on opening the ASPIRA Bilingual Preparatory Academy, a K-8 full language immersion charter school in West Palm Beach. We are also pursuing statewide expansion into Orlando, Kissimmee, Tampa and Southwest Florida.

As we look ahead, we will be presented with many new and exciting opportunities for organizational growth and impact. I am confident our best years are ahead of us, and together, we will continue to make ASPIRA a successful organization devoted to providing an unshakeable educational foundation for youth in our community. I encourage you to gather your collective resources and join me on this Youth Leadership Development journey.

CEO Update

Recently I read in the Democrat and Chronicle of Rochester, New York an article that began with this statement "Education is supposed to reduce the likelihood of being poor. Does being poor reduce the likelihood of being educated?" Too often our children, youth and families are left behind. After 8 years of the landmark legislation No Child Left Behind (NCLB), have we made good on its promises?Too often NCLB was left without any appropriations.

Now there is a new administration in Washington, D.C. which promises to provide the hopes and confidence of a new era. In the mist of the Great Recession of 2008, 2009 and countining, non profit organizations who operate charter schools with a purpose and dropout prevention programs are in need of fair and social financial balance.
