Truly Thrive is devoted to creating the conditions for all young people in Louisiana to thrive, particularly those living in poverty. Our work is powered by our belief that all children deserve an equal chance to thrive and that every individual, institution, and sector shares the responsibility to break the negative cycles that hold young people to the conditions and ideology of poverty.
We’re part researcher, part organizer, part educator, part investor. We inspire children to ask questions like, “What if?” and “Why not?” Questions that can change their future — and the world.
We believe big things are possible and we’re measuring our work to ensure we’re making a difference. Our measurement efforts are aimed at demonstrating our impact to stakeholders and uncovering ways to improve our programs. From time to time, our model of authentically engaging young people in our governance and operations are studied and reviewed by organizations across the country.
Help us create a future in which every young person in Louisiana will have the guidance of caring adults, a healthy start to life, safe places to call home, an effective education, and the opportunity to help others.
