Who we are

GOALS

Professional Development

Professional Development

tHRive promotes and drives change by providing multiple avenues of growth and development.  Whether it’s a lunch with a leader in the community to learn from their successes and avoid their mistakes, or a partnership with a local higher education facility that provide new and engaging learning opportunities, tHRive creates avenues for members to pursue growth and learning. tHRive believes that continuing education, whether formally or informally, is critical to maintaining strong and continuously growing culture.

Cultivating Relationships

Cultivating Relationships

tHRive is the center of collaboration where professionals are able to network and connect.  The program prides itself in connecting local professionals across the region to engage in ways that were not previously available.  This is a forum where young professionals from the full fabric of the community are able to build relationships that will not only foster the development of each individual member, but also the organization as a whole.

Community Engagement

Community Engagement

Through volunteering and fundraising efforts for our annual Organization of the Year, or the publication of tHRive’s biannual Regional Report as a public-facing representation of young professionals’ opinions about relevant issues in our region, we are committed to making our organization a value-add to the region.
