Project THRIVE is a collaborative effort of many national organizations, each committed to identifying opportunities within their own sphere of influence to increase awareness about and provide resources to address the unmet needs of LGBTQ+ youth, and to highlight best practices and success stories from their respective professional fields. Project THRIVE is committed to an intersectional approach in the work, and to ensuring that BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and other people of color) LGBTQ+ and those who are system-involved or have a history of homelessness are a priority focus.
This show of force across professions is supported by leaders from the nation's largest health, education, child welfare, legal, and juvenile justice organizations and are aimed at consolidating work to address, with singular focus, the persistent challenges and barriers that not only prevent LGBTQ+ young people from thriving, but continue to compromise their health, safety, and well-being.
Time to THRIVE is an annual regional summit for educators, counselors, social workers, and other youth-serving professionals to learn how they can create safe, inclusive, and affirming environments for LGBTQ+ youth.
