Join our new Parent to Parent Facebook page!

This group serves as an opportunity for moms, dads, grandparents..., aunts and uncles, mentors (you get the idea) to come together to learn from, and inspire each other in our important work supporting young people!


Austin Aspires Parent to Parent group on Facebook

StriveTogether brings proven expertise, effective resources and a nationally-recognized collective impact approach that enables communities to create local education ecosystems to support children and youth from cradle to career.

This approach helps align existing resources to increase impact by using data to determine what works best for children. We support communities in developing shared outcomes and indicators of success to use across programs and systems, identifying promising practices and allowing for meaningful dialogue about local disparities and solutions to close achievement gaps.

​Austin Aspires is a member of the StriveTogether Cradle to Career Network.


September is Attendance Awareness Month!
