Mission Statement

To assist young adults with intellectual and emotional disabilities in utilizing resources within their community so they can claim their identities and participate as viable members of the community.

Description

The cornerstone of the STRIVE Program is our Friday Nigh Events. Held each Friday from 6 to 9 PM at the STRIVE Center in South Portland, these nights give members an opportunity to interact with each other and our local high school and collegiate volunteers. STRIVE addresses many issues for teens ages 15-24. Areas that we address within this population of teens and young adults with disabilities include: improving fundamental academic skills, developing leadership potential, improving economic opportunities through continuing education, enhancing or upgrading work skills, integrating literacy and social skills into occupational/vocational opportunities, fostering career opportunities through education and training, and promoting peer support for parents and siblings of this teen population.
