THRIVE Mentor Program
Mentors for Young Adults Aging Out of Foster Care
Thrive is a statewide one-on-one mentoring program that enhances support for young adults involved in Independent Living Services.
Thrive seeks to acquire community members and foster care alumni to be mentors for young adults by creating collaborative relationships that will help foster care youth thrive and achieve the same success as their peers who are not involved in foster care including: reduced rates of homelessness and teen pregnancy, increased rates of graduation, job stability, social skills, and healthy adult connections. Thrive mentors will receive the training, support and resources necessary to promote a successful mentor relationship.
