2018 Year in Review


A Note From Our 

Executive Director


And just like that, 2018 is coming to a close! What an exciting year it has been, and our plans for 2019 are no less ambitious. Looking back on the last 12 months, I find it remarkable how much we have accomplished — accomplishments that wouldn’t have been possible without the continued support we’ve received from individual donors and foundations. Thank you!  

The need for Strive’s leadership development curriculum continues to grow as the body of research highlighting the critical role that leadership skills play in a student’s academic and professional success grows. Increasingly, schools and communities are turning to Strive for solutions. Strive’s proven leadership programs for students and professional development for coaches and educators provide support to organizations in building capacity at all levels.

Our year included the expansion of our Middle School Curriculum, the launch of Counselor Corps (Strive’s new camp counselor training program), the development of new partnerships, and, of course, continued focus on maintaining access to Sports Challenge through our need-based scholarship program. On behalf of the entire Strive team and our Board of Directors, I’m excited to share our 2018 results with you.

Thank you for your support!

Andrea Valentine

Executive Director
