Our Mission: To support single parents in attaining an education - opening the doors to a career that will enhance their families' lives.
Our History: ASPIRE of Green Country is an independent, non-profit agency affiliated with ASPIRE (Assisting Single Parents in Realizing Education), a national organization of single parent scholarship programs based in Arkansas. The local organization was established and incorporated in January 2011. Statistics have continually shown Oklahoma as having a higher percentage of single-parent families below the poverty level as compared to the national average. The majority of these families are headed by individuals with only a high school education.
One of the best weapons to combat poverty is through education. ASPIRE of Green Country provides incentive scholarships to single parents who desire to earn a post-secondary degree through a college, university or technical school program - enabling them to obtain well-paying, skilled employment.
