Why cultural trips on weekends

Children growing up in lower-income communities often lack access to extra learning resources. Learning is not confined to the classroom but takes place in other positive environments.

These can include introductions to cultural events such as visiting the Brevard Zoo, The Liberty Bell Museum, attending a performance by the Brevard Symphony Orchestra, visiting Kennedy Space Center, or attending the Kissimmee Rodeo.

Middle-class and wealthy families can provide these opportunities to their children.

Lower-income children may lack the opportunity to succeed

but most often they do not lack the talent to succeed.

Here are just some of the places that Aspiration Academy students

will visit for cultural enrichment and a bit of fun.
