Workshops at STRIVE

STRIVE welcomes professionals to come to STRIVE to share their expertise and experience with our clients. Volunteers are regularly invited into our four-week CORE training program to run or participate in discussions on a variety of topics. The focus of past workshops has included:

  • Mock interviews
  • Resume preparation
  • Career mapping
  • Professional communications
  • Social media
  • Civic responsibility
  • Financial literacy

STRIVE’s CORE curriculum is flexible and responsive to the needs and interests of our clients and the many individuals who generously volunteer their time to working with them. Let us know if you’re interested in coming up to STRIVE to work with our participants on any of these topics or others, and we’ll work with you to find a place in our curriculum.
