S.T.R.I.V.E. began in 1997 as a Toledo Police Department initiative to reach out to at-risk youth through educational and recreational activities. It evolved into a stand alone nonprofit organization in 2012. Building on the African proverb “it takes a village to raise a child”, S.T.R.I.V.E. uses the power of our community to raise up our youth.
Flo Wormely is the director of the organization. She is extremely passionate about mentoring and is a familiar face to Toledo students of all ages. Her commitment to the future of STRIVE has resulted in an active working board and two annual fundraisers.
Whether your children need help passing O.G.T.s, mentoring, or a safe place for summer activities STRIVE is the place for them.
Their mission is to promote education, physical fitness, and social development in partnership with law enforcement and educators as mentors.
