Southern Transition Real-World and Independent Vocational Education
STRIVE is a community-based transition program for young adults with disabilities ages 18 to 22 years old. Young adults will spend most of their day developing independent living, social, and employment skills. Young adults will also participate in community-based work experiences based on their strengths, interests, and preferences. Each young adult’s program will be individualized based on their unique needs and the decisions made at the Planning and Placement Team (PPT) meetings.

Young adults will reach their potential to obtain meaningful jobs, live independently, maintain friendships, and participate as active citizens in their community.
The STRIVE Program partners with local school districts, families, young adults, state agencies, and community resources to provide comprehensive transition planning and services. STRIVE prepares young adults for post-secondary life by assisting them in realizing their potential, addressing their needs, and meeting goals related to daily living, career planning, and opportunities for adult learning.
CREC’s Student Services Division collaborates with Local Education Agencies (LEAs) to develop and implement programs on a regional level.
