We build community. It's where our kids grow up.
Thrive’s mission is to inspire the development and education of the next greatest generation.
We consult with communities, offer presentations to youth and parent groups, and train professionals and community leaders.
We have an extensive understanding of substance abuse prevention. Our founder, Matthew Kuehlhorn, is a level II certified prevention specialist based in Colorado. He understands that drug prevention is really about building up people and engaging communities.
Programs for Community
Communities will enjoy subsidized costs for consultation and education.
Thrive can help communities build up multiple protective factors for their youth.
- We work with existing community-based drug prevention coalitions and we can help develop a new coalition if one does not already exist.
- We consult with schools and educators to provide the best, evidence-based programming for building youth life skills.
- We provide honest education to student and parent groups who want to learn more about specific drugs and ‘prevention’ strategies.
- We assess and evaluate communities to determine the best use of resources and the development of strategies that work.
Beginning in 2015, Thrive will pilot and introduce two flagship programs.
Superhero Academy is designed for 11-14 year old students.
Fire Ceremony Camps are designed for 15-18 year old students.
Both programs will teach media, emotional, and financial literacy and they are intended to build up individual protective factors and knowledge of life so that each student can be better prepared to make choices that benefit them and their long-term goals.Learn more.
