What's Happening in April at SASF

Teens: we invite you to the Strive 4 Strength Retreat via Zoom on Saturday, April 16th! Featuring special guest speakers Shawn Harper and Carrie Grace

Strive for Strength is a youth-led local non-profit. Our high school board comes together and hosts a one-day retreat to educate the youth of our community about different topics, ranging from mental health to peer relationships. Every year focuses on a different 'theme,' this year's being self empowerment. We started in 2007 as a teen-led organization to educate, empower, and inform young girls, but have since branched out to all genders to help as many people as we can.
