Apsira has changed in its demographics of the students they serve and of the communities that they serve. An institutionalization of the organization occurred to include many more states. 15-20 years ago Aspira decided to operate schools, now it is their responsibility provide students with a high quality education. Initially the Charter schools were alternative schools but with the Charter school movement, Aspira began to operate Charter schools. The charter schools where not established to replace public schools but served as a model on how to educate people. Blackburn-Moreno explains that when Charter schools expanded, so did youth development. Aspira National Board serves as the voice for Aspira, they deal with public policy and diversity in corporate America.
