Partners in Prevention's Aspire Mentoring Program provides youth, Kindergarten – 12th grade, with a caring, trained, adult friend to serve as a mentor to a young person needing guidance, support and encouragement.

Partners in Prevention's Aspire Mentoring Program started as a pilot project in 1996. Since that time, the program has grown and now provides children with caring adult mentors in the following school districts: Longview, Pine Tree, Spring Hill, Hallsville, and White Oak. 

The Mentoring Program has received recognition over the years, including the Governor’s Volunteer Award for Forever Friends (Now called Aspire Mentoring Program); Texas Association of Partners in Education; and highlighted in the 100 Best Communities for Young People award to Longview in 2008 and 2011.
