About Nonprofit

STRIVE International was founded in East Harlem in 1984 to provide job readiness, soft skills, and vocational job training and placement programs to individuals who face substantial barriers to employment. From the outset, STRIVE adopted a rigorous approach to job readiness that focused on the behaviors and life situations of individuals with significant challenges. Three decades later, STRIVE’s training and employment model has proven to be a highly flexible approach that works in diverse locations and cultures. Today, STRIVE’s programs are offered in 21 U.S. locations as well as overseas, administered by a robust network of community-based organizations and headquartered in New York City.
