Thrive Collective mobilizes students, parents, artists, and community stakeholders to partner with public schools for transformational change. They function both as a matchmaker and direct service provider of arts and mentoring programs that cultivate the character and competencies necessary for students to thrive in today’s world.

Their core programs — Murals, Music, Media, and Mentoring — provide quality arts education and committed adult mentors in predominantly low-income communities throughout New York City. They enhance awareness campaigns and partnerships we have facilitated citywide.

This year, the Thrive Teaching Artists will work in twenty-five schools, facilitate motivational assemblies and recitals, produce fifteen school murals, and pilot a student film festival. Together with their partners, they will serve over 100 schools in all five boroughs.
