Thriving Through Venture
Thriving Through Venture offers collaborative programmes for young people that gives them skills and promotes their confidence and mental wellbeing.
Thriving Through Venture is a charity founded by Caro Strover, with support from Dr Nick Maurice OBE, in recognition of the challenges facing young people today as they move into adulthood.
The programme involves 16-18 year olds from Wiltshire and Swindon.
These volunteers work together as a team in their local communities in the UK, and also with fellow young people in the community of Gunjur in The Gambia, building on the long twinned relationship that Marlborough in Wiltshire has enjoyed with this community. Each year there is a different theme that guides the work within the different projects that the young people undertake
Thriving Through Venture has three distinct objectives
- To provide Thriving Through Venture well being volunteer programmes for young people, that in particular provide a sense of belonging and a sense of purpose which are critical for good mental health wellbeing.
- To conduct formal academic research that informs ways of improving the lives of young people, and the type of support to help young people find their chosen place in their adult world.
- To roll out the programme model to other UK communities, using the link between them and their linked international communities.See more
