A gift to Thrive Youth is an investment in a future young leader to develop the skills and confidence needed to create positive change in their lives and their communities.
Thrive Youth works in underserved communities across Canada to provide leadership development through arts-based education programs. We offer children and youth a turning point; a critical moment of early intervention where we see the brilliant potential of each child and help them to see it for themselves. We empower young people to activate positive change in their lives and in their communities. Students return to classes more engaged, with stronger participation rates, ready to learn, challenge themselves, and take positive risks and are more likely to further their educational journey.
“I wanted to say a very big thank you for a fabulous week of learning, risk taking and reflecting. My class, despite being on the quiet side learned so much from you. Thank you once again for exposing us to new artists and giving my class the opportunity. I hope to do this again next year.”
-Teacher, Nootka Elementary School
“The Thrive Youth program was different for me. The confidence creature activity was AWESOME. I felt so good about it after because the confidence creature changed my point of view and I felt more confident in the class.” – Grade 5 student, Scarborough
