STRIVE DC is a free mentoring and advocacy program for teens that are living with sickle cell disease. Teens ages 13-18 years will receive help on their homework from local college students, set goals, make new friends, go on field trips and learn from young people and peers living with sickle cell disease. The program is managed by Next Step, and is affiliated with Children’s National.

Participants will meet at the University of Maryland Campus in College Park every 2nd & 4th Saturday in September through May from 12 p.m. - 3 p.m. Lunch will be provided and program coordinators will be in contact prior to the program about the specific meeting location on campus.
