About this grant

Flint Area Specialized Employment Services, Inc., 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.
