Thriving Through Venture

“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”

Benjamin Franklin

 

 

Thriving Through Venture offers collaborative programmes for young people that gives them skills and promotes their confidence and mental wellbeing.

Thriving Through Venture was 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 relationship that Marlborough in Wiltshire has enjoyed with this community.

The programme for 2018 includes three projects encompassing activities in the UK and in Gunjur in The Gambia.

"It was Einstein who said that ignorance is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.
We need to rethink how we support our young people in their preparation for adulthood."
