Flint STRIVE provides employment training, placement, and support for hard-to-serve Flint-area residents seeking private-sector jobs. As a replication of the East Harlem Employment Service's workforce training program, Flint STRIVE prepares participants for the workforce through a 19-day intensive workshop that emphasizes the attitudinal prerequisites for successful entry-level employment. This renewal grant will allow Flint STRIVE to train 200 new clients in 2013, and provide follow-up support services to all existing clients. Replication of the STRIVE program in Flint is one of three grants in the Flint Workforce Development cluster.
The Greater Flint Arts Council is providing the leadership for a coalition of downtown Flint stakeholders aimed at improving the image of downtown Flint through increased participation in existing summertime festivals and events.

The 2001 Parade of Festivals will include a lunchtime concert series, and eight multi-day festivals.
This grant will provide support to the Partnership for Children and Youth to contribute to the Expanded Learning and Afterschool Project and the Learning in Afterschool & Summer Project.

The grant will also support hosting a conference: How Kids Learn. Ultimately, the aim is improving access and the quality of out-of-school time learning to help expand learning opportunities for disadvantaged youth.
