Program areas at STRIVE International

Strive's flagship program, career path, follow five pillars, which are proven to increase student's job placement and retention rates. It begins with Strive's signature job readiness workshop, Strive start. Delivered through a work-simulated environment, this program provides the training people need to not only land a job, but build a career. Start focuses on attitude, accountability, personal responsibility, workplace ethics, professional etiquette, and interpersonal skills. Following Strive start, students continue with occupational skills training, which follows one of several career paths aligned with local market demand and employer needs. Training results in one or more industry-recognized credentials. Throughout the program, career coaching gives each student intense, personal attention to identify and remove the obstacles that stand in the way of their success in the workplace. Following completion of career path, Strive provides job placement assistance for students through deep partnerships with local employers, securing jobs that are a good match for students' interests and skills and have a future for growth. All Strive students are offered lifetime services of follow-up and support. Though they may graduate and begin their careers, Strive continues to stand by all of its students. Strive also runs employment programs for specific populations, including for reentry populations and for parents. All programs follow our five-pillar model, but include additional supports ranging from parenting workshops to pre- and post-release classes. The focus is on economic stability, job placements and support.
Strive is the nation's leading solution for people who face the biggest obstacles to employment. Our proven model propels students into careers that lead to upward mobility. What makes Strive unique is the network of providers. The unparalleled network is a combination of operated sites (new york city) and community-based organizations (our affiliate network) in cities across the country, totaling 12 us cities. Strive's highly effective programs provide comprehensive training and job development services for individuals in areas of concentrated poverty and unemployment. Each affiliate is an independent 501c3 organization that licenses with Strive to utilize the Strive program and participate in capacity-building activities. Strive supports the national network via 1) a capable team of dedicated staff that support the national network, 2) capacity-building forums for Strive affiliates to strengthen program quality and develop leadership within the network, such as the annual Strive institute, 3) a national performance management system, 4) program manuals predicated on evidence-based practices, and 5) actively soliciting and securing national grants from public and private funders.
