Our THRIVE program will provide young women (ages 18-22) with a variety of experiences designed to develop and support a positive self-image, foster a space of community, support, and encouragement, and increase confidence and strength found in a diverse group of women. Additionally, THRIVE will provide employment experiences in the hospitality industry (rotating through the housekeeping and food service departments in our resort).

Participants will have both structured and free-time opportunities to enjoy the multitude of recreational activities available in our stunning Rocky Mountain locale. A greater appreciation of the out-of-doors and the Rocky Mountains will be gained. Our property is bordered on three sides by Rocky Mountain National Park - an outdoor enthusiast's playground. Planned excursions will allow participants to hike, climb, snowshoe and enjoy other outdoor pursuits. 

Throughout the semester, participants are guaranteed to gain life experiences and grow personally, travel, experience other cultures, gain work experience, and explore study and career options.
