The STRIVE Leadership Academy provides dance and positive youth development activities for boys and girls , 11 years old to 17 years, in an effort to avoid youth violence, negative peer influences, and other risky behavior.

Specifically, STRIVE will develop protective factors while creating opportunities for our young men and women to learn and practice constructive skills for now and for their futures.


The academy is funded by a grant from the Westchester County Youth Bureau.


STRIVE is comprised of four major services components:

  • Art
  • Dance
  • Leadership Development
  • Nutrition and Fitness
  • Photography
  • Visual Arts
