Welcome to THRIVE Gary!
The philosophy for THRIVE! Gary is a simple one: when you can help younger Gary residents develop lifetime goals and non-violent conflict resolution techniques through the restorative justice model, you significantly reduce the need for violence intervention later in their lives.
The THRIVE! Gary program focuses on building a network of agencies, educators, employers in an innovative network focusing on helping young people improve their lives. The program’s highlights include:
- THRIVE! Gary Youth Ambassadors
- Youth Violence Prevention Network
- Peace Circles
- Social media sites with clients providing content and direction.
The Youth Violence Prevention Office welcomes volunteers from throughout the community. This is an all-hands-on-deck for our young people, and we welcome all of Gary- of all ages- to join us in making Gary a better place!
