The aim of Project STRIVE is to instill hope, build confidence, and provide mentorship to Blind youth ages 13 to 26. Our ultimate goal is to ensure their successful transition to becoming contributing and self-reliant members of society. We seek to accomplish our mission by providing one-on-one mentoring with Blind peers and adults and by holding regularly scheduled activities including discussions on attitudes about Blindness, presentations from competent blind adults, and opportunities for college and career preparation. In everything we do, Project STRIVE is dedicated to the success of the individual and to the promotion of a positive attitude about Blindness.
STRIVE stands for Successful Transition Requires Independence, Vocation & Education.
Project STRIVE meets the second Saturday of each month. We organized a statewide carpool system to increase attendance and use mentors to help participants learn how to use public transportation to get to activities.
We also sponsor programs that require applications to attend, if you contact our email list, these applications along with information about each month’s activities will be mailed to you along with deadlines and instructions. These programs include:
