THRIVE

Cultivating LGBTQ-Inclusive Environments with the help from your Donations

THRIVE'S Mission

THRIVE's mission is to nurture & empower educational communities where students, educators, & families can create & sustain LGBTQ-inclusive environments. Our vision is to create communities where students, educators, and families can celebrate, learn about, and thrive in diversity of gender identity, expression, and sexual orientation.

We want to move toward a future in which all students in Pennsylvania will have the opportunity to learn and succeed in school, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression.

Gender based bullying has multiple negative effects including an increased risk for anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, suicide attempts, school avoidance, academic difficulties, and other detrimental short and long term effects.

  • The vast majority of LGBTQ students in Pennsylvania regularly heard homophobic remarks, sexist remarks, and negative remarks about gender expression.
  • Most LGBTQ students in Pennsylvania have been victimized at school. The majority of these incidents were not reported to adult authorities.
  • LGBTQ students in Pennsylvania often did not have access to in-school resources and supports.


How can THRIVE help?

THRIVE is part of this community. We understand the complexities of the school environment and we can help systematically address gender-based biases and LGBTQ bullying in school. We help communicate the value of comprehensive school anti-bullying/harassment policies;

  • We support Gay-Straight Student Alliances, including Pittsburgh’s first GSA convention in October 2015
  • We provide professional education for school staff and teachers in training on LGBTQ student issues
  • We help students gain access to LGBTQ-inclusive extracurricular resources
