  Dear Friends and Supporters of ASPIRA, With the holidays quickly approaching, this is the perfect opportunity to wish you and your family wonderful holidays and to thank you - our friends and supporters - for the important part you play in helping ASPIRA of New York to invest in the lives of our Latino youth. This year alone, more than 5,000 young Latinos and Latinas participated in ASPIRA's youth development, guidance counseling, and mentoring programs.  This builds on ASPIRA's 50+ years serving more than half a million Latino youth and we could not have gotten this far without the support of foundations, corporate grants, and private contributions from people like you. You have helped ASPIRA deliver services that directly impact the rate of high school completion and college education. Over 95% of the 1,500 Aspirantes we serve each year complete high school, and over 90% go on to college.  Our work is far from over as continued economic uncertainty affects our most vulnerable populations - our youth. In these challenging times, we must especially work to expand our efforts and influence. As always, we are grateful for your generous support, which allows us to continue our work. As the year comes to a close, we ask you to consider an end-of-year contribution to ASPIRA of NY to help support its College Access Leadership Development Program (CALDP).  CALDP, known as the ASPIRA Leadership Clubs provides Latino youths with a wide range of educational, college advisement, mentoring, and leadership development services. ASPIRA successfully raises funds to address youth at risk from dropping-out of school and for youth development services identified by public auspices to operate after-school programs. Unfortunately, ASPIRA does not receive funds to support its CALDP -Leadership Clubs, and must rely on your generosity. Thank you for your continued support. Muchas Felicidades!
