youthrive’s mission is to engage young people with adults through education, leadership, and service to integrate peace-building activities into their lives, communities, and the world.


Best known for hosting visiting Nobel Peace Prize Laureates, youthrive provides in-school and out-of-school time programs serving middle and high school aged youth.  youthrive prepares youth and adults to work together as partners creating positive community impact through service-learning projects.

Our BEING THE CHANGE (BTC) program provides a structured group mentoring and leadership development program that combines three powerful components - Education, Inspiration and Action - to nurture goal-directed thinking and build the leadership and social-emotional skills all young people need to thrive.

Youth participating in BTC grow in ways that contribute directly to improved school achievement by engaging in constructive behavior, strengthening civic participation, and building positive relationships with adults and age-peers.
