Drive change for young people with every mile. 

Thrive Youth provides zero cost leadership development programs for children and youth in under-served and under-resourced communities. 

At Thrive, we believe in the boundless potential of young people to not only dream of a better future, but to shape it with their own hands. Our mission is to unlock this potential and bridge the gap between limited opportunities and expansive dreams.

Your generosity fuels hope, education, and empowerment. See how every dollar contributes to transformative programs that open doors for young minds in under-resourced communities.

About Thrive

At the heart of our work is a simple yet profound conviction: every young person possesses an innate strength and brilliance that, when nurtured, can lead to extraordinary achievements.

What we Do

Thrive offers a range of in-school, out of school, and after school programming for children and youth aged 9 to 17.  Our curriculum is designed to impart self-confidence, self-worth, and self-efficacy through arts-based creative learning. The overarching goal is to empower our participants to feel like they can make a difference in their own lives and the lives of people around them. These programs offer our participants the chance to:

Participate in creative learning that supports the development of critical leadership skills
Broaden their horizons through exposure to new activities, places, and peers

Shake off negative labels they may have from school or home 

Find their unique strengths

Make change in their communities

Build positive skills that encourage greater participation in school
