STRIVE Future Leaders


Launched in 2015, this innovative, comprehensive program for justice-involved young adults incorporates evidence-based, informed practices and promising strategies to help youth become thriving adults and community members. The program is funded by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) and was developed in collaboration with MDRC and the Youth Development Institute, with support from The Annie E. Casey Foundation. It offers much-needed work experience, community service opportunities, and chances to demonstrate leadership qualities, all to ensure these at-risk youth have a better chance at success.
