Strive Consulting is excited to announce our partnership with Horizons for Youth, an organization providing need-based scholarships, support programs and education resources to local Chicago students.
Founded in 1990, the organization focuses on providing quality education, involvement in the larger community and support systems to students. Horizons for Youth enables students to achieve academic success from kindergarten through high school with continued socio-emotional and academic support during college.
Horizons for Youth has been serving the Chicago community for 28 years, has achieved a 99% high school graduation rate and on average has covered 80% of college costs for students enrolled in the organization.
Strive will be partnering with Horizons for Youth on a number of initiatives, including participation in Horizons monthly enrichment outings, providing business support to the organization, as well as creating a Leadership Series for Horizons students.
“We sought to design a volunteer program that provided time and skills where they would be most helpful to Horizons, not the other way around,” said Brad Abt, Senior Consultant at Strive.
