Our Services

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 and advance along a career pathway. We do this through the following five components:

We also offer specialized services for youth, parents, and women, as well as direct job placement for those who already possess the necessary skills and experience. Call (212)360-1100 for more information!
