Volunteer through Reynolds’ ASPIRE program

Reynolds High School is seeking volunteers for ASPIRE (Access to Student Assistance Programs in Reach of Everyone), a statewide mentorship program in its second year at the high school.

ASPIRE volunteers mentor students once a week during and after high school, connecting them with college and career resources.

Volunteers mentor Reynolds students anywhere from one to five hours a week. Each volunteer works with up to 10 students in 20- to 30-minute increments.

Along with offering college and financial aid resources, mentors help students explore careers and offer a career assessment. All volunteers must pass a background check and go through an ASPIRE training before mentoring students.
