The organization “uAspire” works to ensure that all young people have the financial information and resources to find an affordable path to, and through, a college education. “uAspire” partners with high schools, community organizations and colleges to provide advice to more than 10,000 young people and their families every year. Its recent “Cap and Gown Gala” honored local business and community leaders who were the first in their families to earn a college degree. We focus on how “u-Aspire” works and the difference it has made for so many.
