We offer three main programs: Thrive After School, Thrive Summer, & Mentoring. Thrive After School is the heart of what we do. Students join us for 3 hours of programming every day when school is in session, Monday – Friday. Our students participate in Bible studies and small groups, homework-help time, one-on-one tutoring lessons, reading lessons, team + character-building activities, educational electives, outside play time, and share a healthy, home-cooked meal. Thrive Summer is a 6-week reading intensive program that blends educational activities with encouragement, excitement, and fun. Mentoring is an opportunity to intentionally invest in a Thrive student in a life changing way. Thrive has programs in Lonsdale, Parkridge, New Hopewell, and the Papermill area. Programs are available for K-12th grade in Lonsdale and K-5th at all other locations.
“They’ve come to a place where there’s structure, and there’s freedom, and there’s joy and nurture. And so they’re moving from surviving to thriving.”
