STRIVE Young Adults

The focus of STRIVE is to encourage and foster independence in work skills, personal life, and social interaction among peers. Individuals who attend STRIVE classes will have additional exposure to job readiness skills, household responsibilities, appropriate hygiene, and grooming skills as well as community involvement and leisure skills. STRIVE aims to ensure that individuals are prepared for the next step in their lives by teaching and practicing critical skills for independence in adulthood.


Participants are individuals age 18-29 that are able to independently participate in a group learning environment with minimal support/supervision and without disruptive or aggressive behavior.
