STRIVE Information Session
Wednesday, November 30th at 7:00 PM on Zoom

Are there at-risk students in your community?

Do you wish your Rotary Club could do more to help these students?

Did you know that Rotary has a program model you can adapt to your community?

Come learn about STRIVE!

The goal of the STRIVE (Students Taking a Renewed Interest in the Value of Education) Program is to motivate, guide and reward high school students who have struggled academically and have the greatest opportunity for academic improvement. While each club is free to modify the program to meet the needs of students in their own community, key components of the program typically include:          

  • Adult mentors who meet regularly with individual students
  • Group meetings with presentations on topics relevant to success in school and life
  • Opportunities to visit local businesses, non-profits and colleges
  • Community service opportunities
  • Summer work incentive
  • Scholarships for college or post-secondary training
