STRIVE Boston – START Program
Program activities:

Job Retention services are provided to each graduate of the STRIVE START (Success Through Attitudinal and Readiness Training) Workshop once they begin employment. For SNAP eligible clients, their Job Retention services will begin on the first day of their employment and continue for a minimum of 30 days and a maximum of 90 days thereafter. Employment is verified via pay-stubs or other types of verifications provided by the STRIVE client and/or the employer.

Job retention activities may include on-the-job visits and/or regular communication with our clients and their supervisors. Job retention services typically occur weekly for up to 30 minutes in length for a minimum of 30 days or a maximum of 90 days. This strategy enables us to address any workplace issues, provide additional training, find new employment placements as needed, and provide coaching and support as our clients look to advance in position and develop their careers.
