Choice & Tribe
The ASPIRA Middle School Initiative design is a gender-specific club model base on the ASPIRA National Leadership Development Model Curriculum for middle school girls and boys that emphasizes small group interaction, youth leadership, and values exploration for 4th thru 8th grade students.
The girls' clubs are called CHOICE (Creating Heroines of Independent Creative Expression) and the boys' clubs are called TRIBE (Truth and Responsibility in Boys' Empowerment). The primary goals of the gender specific clubs are to provide young people with a safe environment in which to explore complex issues, learn how to make positive decisions, learn how to define and expand their expectations for themselves, develop self-confidence and self-esteem, strengthen their communication and academic skills, and participate in enjoyable and socially positive community activities.
