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
The Alaska Humanities Forum is a non-profit, non-partisan organization that designs and facilitates experiences to bridge distance and difference – programming that shares and preserves the stories of people and places across our vast state, and explores what it means to be Alaskan.
