“Thrive Collective exemplifies what can be accomplished when caring individuals team up to leverage their energy, creativity and expertise to positively impact the educational process. By promoting and encouraging community and school partnerships, Thrive assists educators with building a solid foundation for success. As trailblazers in their unique design of mobilizing students and community stakeholders through creative arts projects, Thrive gives true meaning to the African Proverb, ‘It takes a whole village to raise a child.”
