Welcome to STRIVE, Inc. Web Site

STRIVE, Inc. is a private non-profit organization of parents and professionals dedicated to providing opportunities for young adults with learning disabilities to transition from school to post-secondary training, employment, and successful community living.

Why was STRIVE started?

What is STRIVE?

Non college bound young adults with significant learning disabilities need transition services and continuing life long education, training, and support just as much as their counterparts who are going to post secondary "academic" institutions. Yet, young adults with moderate to severe LD may not find an "academic" college program to be a viable option. STRIVE provides an alternative "college-based" experience.

For college bound LD students, STRIVE provides a life line that anchors them in a strong support system if they should feel tossed about in "turbulent academic seas" or need a stable, social support network to improve or establish a social life.

STRIVE is a non-credit, CEU, certificate granting, college campus and community based career life planning program. The program prepares LD students for the challenges of adult living in the following areas:

  • career life planning

  • community based training, involvement, and employment

  • community service learning
  • recreation and leisure

  • social skills

  • academic referral

STRIVE offers courses through Northern Virginia Community College
