1. Am I a STRIVE Student?

A STRIVE student means you may have had to overcome some challenges or barriers in order to start your journey at SLC and you may need some extra support or guidance to achieve success while at college.

2. Do I need any documentation to join the STRIVE program?

No documentation required! This is a self-identification program.

3. Why should I identify as a STRIVE Student?
Lots of reasons!

  • Fun social events - we get together as a group and have lunches, contents, and most important fun!
  • We understand your unique needs as being part of the First Generation community
  • SWAG - show your SLC spirit with some great items sporting our college!

4. How do I confirm I'm a STRIVE Student?

It's Easy!
There are a few different ways

  1. Email strive@sl.on.ca and let us know you're a STRIVE student
  2. Visit a STRIVE team member on your prospective campus

5. Do you have any STRIVE events?

Yes! We have events throughout the school year!  Lunches, games, contests, workshops, social gatherings and more!

6. I’m struggling with my studies, what can I do?

We offer one-on-one support to:

  • Review study/class skills
  • Life skills
  • Set goals
  • Create career/program path
  • And more!

We can also connect you with other services:

7. Am I in the correct academic program?

This is always a tricky question! We can come up with a plan, make sure you’re on the correct path, course, and to have supports in place for you to succeed.  We will also set goals, not only the final goal, but also all the smaller goals which help you achieve the final goal. Connect with us!

9. I’m looking for a job, can I get help narrowing down my search?

Definitely! Visit our Career Services online Job Board which shows not only student jobs on campus but also many others throughout the community.  You can tailor the job board to search for only jobs in your area and/or campus.
