Can you picture a community rich with opportunities for our adolescents to grow and learn, to stretch and explore? Can you picture a community with plenty of opportunities for healthy socialization and citizens actively engaged in community service? Can you imagine teens having adequate resources in South Lake County to learn effective and safe coping mechanisms, to gain confidence, and to experience joyful growth? Can you visualize a community that invests in early prevention which looks like programming to support growth and expansion and thus avoid larger financial and social costs later in funding rehabilitation?
Thrive Clermont’s programming is focused on making this vision a reality through our mission of Empowering Teens to Succeed!
Our future lies in the hearts and minds of the teen population. And many are struggling emotionally. Due to a wide variety of causes, teen mental health is reaching crisis status. Our own South Lake community felt the direct consequences of this unfortunate trend in 2017 with a rash of tragedies which brought this issue to the forefront. We wish there was a quick fix, an easy out, or a simple solution. There is not.
However, Thrive Clermont is working hard to organize and execute the kind of local and personal programs that creates environments in which adolescents THRIVE. Since 2016, we have served over 500 teens through fun and valuable programs that feature healthy socialization, mentoring, and skillbuilding elements. All proven to improve mental health in adolescents and young adults. In 2019, thanks to your support, we continue to grow our impact and our programming. Check out our website for current and planned programming for area teens.
Can you picture it? WE CAN!
