As the primary convener and collaborator in Wake County for youth-serving professionals and organizations, Youth Thrive serves as a place for every voice to be heard. Youth Thrive is the home of the Youth Thrive Network, an avenue to receive training and technical assistance to help those helping our young people.  Youth Thrive is also home to the Youth Places and Spaces GIS Map, a resource which helps identify youth-serving organizations and services throughout Wake County.  Youth Thrive also seeks to be a place where shared understanding through data-driven decision making identifies gaps and seeks to align services reaching all youth and helping them toward becoming thriving adults.

Youth Thrive is NOT a program providing direct services to youth, rather a collaborative of those serving youth.  Youth Thrive’s efforts amplify the reach of what it available to youth in Wake County by increasing communication, identifying gaps and aligning resources for youth programs and services.
