About this grant

The Flint STRIVE Replication Program, a project of Specialized Employment Services, Inc., provides employment training, job placement, and support services to difficult-to-serve Flint area residents seeking entry-level jobs in a variety of sectors. As a replication of the East Harlem Employment Service’s workforce training program, Flint STRIVE prepares participants for the workforce through a 19-day, 130-hour intensive workshop that emphasizes the attitudinal prerequisites for successful, entry-level employment. This renewal grant will allow Flint STRIVE to train, graduate, and find employment for approximately 275 new clients in 2015 and provide follow-up services to all existing clients.
