Aspire develops confident, capable individuals—from early childhood to adults pursuing careers—who value learning as a gateway to a better life. Programs include adult and family literacy—English language acquisition and GED preparation—and workforce training programs.
Founded in 1961 as Literacy Instruction for Texas (LIFT), the organization was renamed Aspire in 2020 after the merger between LIFT and the Aberg Center for Literacy.
