The Thrive Programme
Our award winning Thrive Programme works with young people aged 13+ to support them to broaden their horizons and reach their fullest potential through the delivery of a wide variety of engaging training with access to accredited awards including the Dynamic Youth Award and Youth Achievement Awards. We also offer placement opportunities for school work experience, Duke of Edinburgh Award schemes, college and university courses.
“The Thrive Programme does exactly what it is called, it allows young people within the East End to thrive, grow and develop. It empowers young people to have a voice and most importantly use this voice, it empowers young people to become young leaders and be the change within their communities and be the best they can be” Rohanna Irvine, Active East Programme Manager

The Emerging Leaders project works with young people aged 13+ and offers a range of tailored workshops delivered by experienced staff to develop confidence, self-esteem and leadership abilities as well as an opportunity for young people to identify and explore a topic of their choice following a peer education model. The Emerging Leaders project currently works within secondary schools with pupils aged S2-S6 but can also be delivered in a community setting. The project welcomes speakers and works collaboratively with partner organisations to offer young people a far reaching and meaningful experience. Past topics have included animal cruelty and young people’s mental health.
