WHAT WE DO
Thrive partners with churches, schools and communities to offer programmes that support the emotional, social and spiritual growth of young people.
We deliver our work through three programme strands: Schools work, Community programmes, and Faith Activities.
Offering early-intervention and pastoral support to help young people develop independent skills to cope with issues such as anxiety and low self-esteem. We do this through weekly 1:1 and/or group mentoring over a set period (usually 6 weeks).
A drop in space within secondary schools for students to engage with local youth workers, play games, socialise, and access support. Students can drop into Thrive Space during breaktimes and lunchtimes.
THRIVE YOUTH CAFES
Thrive provides weekly open access youth cafes during term time. These are safe spaces for young people to socialise after school during their free time, engage in fun activities, access pastoral support, and connect with local youth workers.
Thrive Summer Programme
Across the summer, we run an exciting range of activities. Previously these have included a Bake Off Challenge, BBQs. Youth Cafés, Aqua Park Trips, and Awards Evenings.
We offer free training to local youth workers to invest in the local youth work landscape. This includes mentoring training, and we are currently delivering the Youthscape Essentials Course on a half termly basis.
Thrive offers opportunities for young people, of all faiths and none, to explore the Christian faith in safe and inclusive environments.
Thrive Extra is an optional 15 minute segment after our Youth Cafés for young people to stay on for to explore a short reflection on Christian faith. Usually we have a theme for the term.
Thrive Collective is a half termly event for everyone involved in Thrive. We share a meal together, enjoy games and challenges, and explore the Christian faith together through fun activities.
We run a 3 day faith-focussed residential in the summer for young people to take part in fun activities, gain new experiences, and explore Christian faith through group sessions across the trip. Last year we had a blast in Fen Drayton!
