With a goal of helping youth become and stay employed, the Thrive convening brought together youth service organizations, youth, funders, and other stakeholders to catalyze connections, learn from each other, and spark local community action.

We hope sharing the Thrive Convening Summary Highlights (5.3 MB) as well as the Youth Insights on Employment as shared at the Thrive Convening (4.5 MB) will help your organization strengthen how it helps youth find and keep employment.
