Youth Thrive is the source for youth-serving professionals and organizations in Wake County

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 Wake County Youth Services Map.  This resource 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.  For more on the infrastructure of Youth Thrive, check out our 12-Month Action Plan.

Youth Thrive is NOT a program. It is a collaborative. We do not provide direct services to youth, but instead seek to serve those serving our 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.
