The STRIVE program at Bridges Alternative Learning Center was front and center recently at a Club meeting. STRIVE, which stands for Students Taking a Renewed Interest In the Value of Education, is gearing up for another season. The program matches students with adult mentors, many of whom are Prior Lake Rotarians. STRIVE Co-Chairs Cindy Shepard and Max Moser and Bridges ALC Coordinator Dave Brown spoke about the program and the need for mentors. As Dave stated, "(These students) know they have issues and they are kids that want to progress forward. But there are things in their lives, there's stuff going on." He stated mentors help them process this and help figure things out so they can move forward. Training is provided to prospective mentors.
