Program Components

THRIVE focuses on establishing strong and lasting relationships within the community by implementing a three tier interactive approach:

  1. Community Events: THRIVE community members have monthly dinners, one outdoor adventure a year, and one service-learning activity a year.
  2. Small Group: These peer mentor-led events include game nights, educational and skills-focused programs, team building activities, etc. These small group interactions occur one-two times a month.
  3. Partner/Buddies: These community member-led activities include getting lunch or dinner together, going to fightin’ Texas Aggie games, playing Mario Kart (or other), watching TV, and studying. The only limit is your imagination with the vast ways to interact and get to know your buddy!
THRIVE programs and events incorporate the four targeted domains of wellness: life skills, balanced lifestyle, general health, and purpose and engagement.

  • Examples of programs include: Healthy Eating with the Registered Dietician, Scheduling & Studying Tips for Success, Coloring Your Stress Away, etc.
THRIVE community members are placed on a floor or wing of a hall.
