STRIVE Career Path


Our flagship program, Career Path, follows our five pillars, which are proven to increase students’ 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 our 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 our students.

The five-pillar model that makes up STRIVE Career Path has been used to lay the foundation for all of STRIVE’s programs.
