Student Recruitment

Important Documents

Always be sure to keep copies of the Student Permission Form (in English & Spanish) and the ASPIRE Brochure ready and available for conversations with parents and students.

The School Counselor Referral Form is a great way for school counselors to be able to refer students to the program and can help build a school's support team ability to work together.

The Educator Promotional Flier is a good item to share with teachers and administrators for them to promote the program to students and parents.


A few of the common practices for informing students about the program include:

  • Tabling at events where students and parents are present: registration, back-to-school nights, financial aid nights, parent-teacher conferences, etc., so you can talk with parents about the program and get signed permission forms completed.
  • Ensure staff know about the program (through formal and informal conversations) and that they can refer students to you in order to get students on board.
  • Talk with students while visiting classes and speaking at class meetings and assemblies.
  • Encourage students to refer their peers to the program.

Use the Student Recruitment Planner and suggestions in the Recruiting and Matching Students documents to help create a recruiting plan that can work for you.
