    Did you know that there are youth in St. John’s who are sleeping on the streets, going without food on daily basis, unable to read and write, and that some experience violence or trauma on a regular basis? Since 2001 Thrive, a charitable youth organization, has pinpointed gaps in youth services, identified where young people are falling through the cracks, and created solutions to address these unique needs. We do this through direct service delivery and supporting youth service providers to improve their capacity to deliver high quality services to vulnerable youth. For more information please visit www.thrivecyn.ca. Thrive’s annual fundraiser, Le Carnaval, takes place on October 18th at the CLB Armoury. In addition to supporting our outreach, educational, recreational, and support services, Le Carnaval is an event designed to increase awareness of Thrive, and the positive changes that can be made in and for today’s youth. For your ticket price of $125.00 (charitable receipt for $75.00) you’ll be entertained by the Greg Bruce Band, mesmerized by fire dancers, aerialists, a live painter, magic tricks, games of chance… and all the delicious food you can eat! Funds raised will provide food, education, emergency support, and recreational activities to many of our city’s disadvantaged youth. Help Thrive make a difference in our community!
