Last weekend we had a fun mentorship session with our 2020 #StriveSurviveSucceed scholarship recipients as we discussed all it takes to purchase a car (and all of the expenses we often don't consider) with @bankofamerica's Better Money Habits tips. We ended the session by catching up with all of our amazing scholarship recipients achievements! Thanks to everyone who attended and help educate the next generation of youth!

Who We Are

Strive Survive Succeed is a 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization that was founded in 2013, our main purpose is to assist Oakland underserved youth with a $1000 scholarship to assist with costs while pursuing a higher education, provide a firsthand college experience to the youth through college campus tours and skill building college preparatory workshops.

It is very important to make sure that youth understand that they have options and they can succeed. Many of Oakland’s youth are challenged with societal and financial situations where they may feel their dream is unattainable; this organization will help students continue to strive for their dream of being successful.

It is necessary that youth are exposed to opportunities, independence, responsibility and leadership, and education is the key in allowing these abilities to be presented and developed. Having the elementary, middle school and high school scholars see members of their community return from college and are contributing to their community by being an inspiration, a positive image and an agent of change is critical for empowerment.

Strive Survive Succeed aims to assist in eliminating barriers to higher education and allow students to enhance their experience and knowledge during their post-secondary education.
