What We Do

STRIVE is an empowerment movement disguised as an employment agency.

Having a job means being empowered. Working allows us to be self-sufficient and self-confident. We earn the money needed to support ourselves and our families. We build confidence and self-respect knowing we are contributing to the larger community and are relied upon.

But for those who have been disconnected from the workforce – whether through lay-offs or incarceration, military service or personal troubles – unemployment becomes a self-fulfilling cycle: without a job, individuals lose confidence and a positive outlook. Without the right attitude, it can be very difficult to find and keep a job.

The STRIVE employment model  is rooted in the belief that every individual has the power to change and often simply needs the tools and supports to do so. We ensure that every client is not only ready to find a job, but also to keep it. We do this through the following five components:

1. Attitudinal and Job Readiness

2. Skills Training

3. Support Services

4. Job Placement

5. Follow-up

At STRIVE, we’re not finding you a job. We’re preparing you to succeed.
