About this grant

A project of Specialized Employment Services, Inc., the Flint STRIVE Replication Program provides employment training, placement, and support to difficult-to-serve Flint area residents seeking entry-level jobs in a variety of sectors.

This renewal grant will allow Flint STRIVE to train, graduate, and find employment for approximately 275 new clients in 2014 and provide follow-up support services to all existing clients.
