Each year, AWP hosts a luncheon honoring some of the outstanding and noteworthy role models within the community to expose our youth to their stories. The luncheon also serves as Aspires' major fundraiser for ongoing programs such as tutoring, parent education, career exploration, mentoring and social development. All contributions to the luncheon are tax deductible.
The Role Models for Youth Luncheon is also an opportunity to acknowledge Pasadena Unified School District graduating high school seniors. Selected high school seniors announce their future academic or vocational plans and receive special recognition and awards for their achievement.
