About this grant
The Flint STRIVE Replication Program, a project of Specialized Employment Services, Inc., provides employment training, job placement, and support services for hard-to-serve Flint area residents. 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 employment. This grant will allow the grantee to train and place approximately 220 people into entry-level jobs as the community continues to recover from the water crisis.
