Take a peek into the energy and enthusiasm of STRIVE Mentoring:  
Students Taking Renewed Interest in the Value of Education (S.T.R.I.V.E)

STRIVE Mentoring is a program connecting Stillwater Area High School students with adults from the community who will engage with and encourage them during these key years of their young life. Research shows that students who have trustworthy relationships with adults who are not their parents or teachers are beneficial for teenagers in many ways: increases their self-worth, gains perspective of the world around them, and gives them a sense of opportunities for their future. Our experience is that through mentorship, students are inspired to excel.

STRIVE Stories
Brent Voight shared some of his observations from this morning's sessions:
The group I was with during 1st hour was awesome. They participated, talked open and honestly, and had some really good depth to their assessments of the situations we wrestled with. One student in particular stood out and I mentioned it to him—that I considered him to be intelligent and that I was impressed with his depth of thought and leadership of the group. His initial response, “Really?” And then after I reiterated it, he said a sincere thank you.
