WHAT IS THRIVE ONLINE ALL ABOUT?

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.
