About Sioux Falls Thrive
It’s been said that all a child needs to succeed is a little help, a little hope, and someone who believes in them.
When it comes to our kids, Sioux Falls does more than help, hope, and believe. We’re dedicated to making sure all children succeed, from cradle to career. That’s Sioux Falls Thrive’s mission.
Studies show that the environment a child comes from has as much or more to do with success than what goes on in the classroom. It’s tough for kids to come to school ready to learn when their families struggle to provide a secure home and other basic needs.
That’s why Thrive works to remove systemic obstacles to student success. We do that using a collective impact action model.
It’s a big project, but there’s no more important investment we can make than in the future of our kids ─ every child, every step, from cradle to career.
Cradle to Career
Cradle to career initiatives are designed to help school-age children reach their highest levels of academic and career potential.
Collective impact is a problem-solving framework used to address complex community issues.
