In 2013, YDI began working with STRIVE, a workforce development organization that sought to better develop their approach to working with youth. Together with support from the Pinkerton Foundation, YDI helped STRIVE create a new youth service model, STRIVE Future Leaders, which currently operates in NYC and 10 sites across the country. Now Future Leaders has been selected as one of only five inaugural grantees of the Citi Foundation’s Pathways to Progress Youth Financial Capability Fund. The grant will enable STRIVE to incorporate financial empowerment services into the Future Leaders program. Congratulations to our friends at STRIVE!
