Pottstown students have big dreams.
We help get them there.
Their future and the future of Pottstown depends on their education.
Each year, Pottstown loses the potential of its younger citizens who drop out of school. The loss is felt across many sectors: personal growth, life satisfaction, and health, as well as in civic engagement, the regional economy, and the criminal justice system. We listen to students’ voices to help them overcome the obstacles standing in the way of their dreams.

mentors and volunteers
We’re changing the lives of young people now.
During the previous school years, STRIVE matched 30 trained mentors with middle school students who have common interests. Teachers, students, and mentors fostered these relationships during a 7:50-8:30 a.m. mentoring block and the 5th- 8th grade lunch periods, allowing these young people to develop lasting relationships with caring adults, enhance community connection, and build self-confidence.
