Thrive strives to support youth service providers across all sectors in providing the best possible services for young people in our communities. We endeavour to encourage communication, connection and collaboration through the following initiatives:


Thrive offers professional development sessions for service providers within the helping professions. These sessions encourage service providers to come together to learn and network over a complimentary light meal. Each session features a keynote presentation on a topic relevant to our shared profession as well as a networking activity to help us stay connected, increase collaboration, maintain awareness of the services available within our community, and talk about the issues affecting us as a community. Sessions are free of charge.

Professional Development & Training Opportunities

Thrive offers affordable professional development training to service providers that is both real and relevant. Currently Thrive offers two training opportunities, CASEY – Coalition Against the Sexual Exploitation of Youth and Trauma Informed Practice.  Thrive strives to ensure that all training provides practical information and best practice skills on the issues that challenge us all as service providers. Our aim is to ensure that service providers are equipped to provide the best service possible for our young people. Youth often co-present and participate in panel discussions to ensure that the youth voice is both heard and utilized.
