Thrive Together

Thrive Together is rooted in seeing students through a strengths-based lens, understanding cultural identity as a source of strength, and building supportive networks that will help students navigate high school and find success in post-secondary opportunities and beyond.

 


Thrive Together, supports Anchorage School District students in grades 7 through 12.


Thrive Together draws on research that indicates building and sustaining a positive identity – in combination with rigorous academic preparation and providing guidance on postsecondary navigation – is a critical and rarely addressed need in postsecondary access and completion programming.

Students participate in an intentional arc of learning across the semester, where they explore their post-secondary options, connect with their cultural identities, and plan for their futures.

Key program components include:

- art & storytelling workshops

- post-secondary skill building

- sessions with community members and culture bearers

- field trips

- exploration of potential career paths

Thrive Together is a grant funded program through the Alaska Department of Education and Early Development
