BECOME A PARTNER SCHOOL

When a school chooses to partner with HISPA, we work with their administration to select student participants and schedule six role model visits throughout the academic year.
At each visit, one or two HISPA Role Models share their journeys to inspire and motivate students that they can overcome any obstacle and succeed with hard work and education.

“Very effective! A pin could be heard if it dropped. Students and teachers were moved by the HISPA Role Model’s incredible presentation.”

“The HISPA Role Model was very effective. She instilled self-motivation in our scholars and encouraged them to pursue their dreams. She was very original and sensitive to the diverse audience.”
