Strive for Purpose is a youth led, leadership group that promotes wellness, acceptance, and the prevention of substance abuse within our community.
Strive For Purpose started in Aurora to tackle the issues teens are facing surrounding drugs in the community. Local high school students came together to empower their peers to lead lives that were healthy, accepting, and purpose driven. Strive For Purpose is the perfect platform for youth seeking change or wanting to help in their community.
They are 100% youth led, meaning that every decision and action that Strive has produced was the choice of young people. Strive students continue to break the mold, even outside of our program. They also have a voice in the Aurora Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition, as well as hosting local events for youth.
Strive is always accepting new members, Just Apply!
We start with dinner, then spend the rest of the time on issues that matter like:
• Positive Social Norming
• Peer Acceptance Despite Hardships
• Drug Use in Aurora Teens
• Alternative Activities for Teens
• Events to Build The Youth Up
• Issues Facing Our Community
• Anything That Matters To You
Mission: We strive to promote wellness, acceptance and support for the youth and community of Aurora through alcohol and drug prevention.
Vision: Strive For Purpose will help create a successful and safe community where youth are rewarded with acceptance for being who they are regardless of hardships.
