Thrive Online builds the leadership and enterprise skills of students, giving them a clearer sense of future direction to thrive in school, work and life.


Thrive Online  is Youth Opportunities Personal Leadership Program reimagined. This flexible online program has been designed to empower schools to deliver a meaningful SACE Personal Learning Plan (PLP) subject, whilst providing the opportunity for tailored personal development in the classroom to meet individual school and student needs.

Thrive Online is delivered online in a classroom setting with students working through select modules under the guidance of a trained educator. Similar to our hallmark Personal Leadership Program, students will be guided through a range of topics designed to broaden their self-concept, increase their self-esteem, and develop goal planning strategies and career goals to support future career path and build the skills young people need to thrive in school, work and life.

Thanks to Youth Opportunities I learnt the skills to be happy in life. I had no idea what to do before and now I know I can be and do whatever I set my mind to as long as I commit and actually go for my dreams!

I was so worried about Dan before Youth Opportunities. He seemed so lost and had all but given up on school. I didn’t know what to do. After the program, he was the happiest I have ever seen him. He decided to become a scientist and has been applying himself to his studies ever since.

Paul, Father of Graduate

Thrive offers us the opportunity to work with teachers and schools to tailor program topics to meet the specific needs of schools and students.

The program and supporting educator resources are designed to enable various levels of blended learning depending on the educator’s needs. Students are able to work through the program online at their own pace, with suggested opportunities for the educator to facilitate group discussion, reflection, knowledge sharing and deeper learning.
