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

We are currently developing a new website.

KS4 (yr10-11) - Who Are You? Academic Enrichment Programme. A unique programme for young people (14-16), promoting positive mental wellbeing, flexibility and resilience; focussing on Community, Identity and Personal Brand.

KS5 (yr12) - Identities & Communities Programme. A journey, supporting the development of identity on a personal, local and global level. Working with our programme partners in The Gambia, the programme encourages participants (16-17) to consider their identity and, in particular, seeks to provide a sense of connectedness with their local community and the wider world.

FROM MARLBOROUGH TO GUNJUR

Changing young people's lives:

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

"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."
