JaxTHRIVE is a welcoming resource to refugee students who have come to this country under extraordinary circumstances. We are a student-led non-profit 501c3 organization whose aim is to provide a nurturing environment where tutoring, life skills, mentoring, and friendship help refugee students advance in the classroom and flourish in the community.
Making A Difference
JaxTHRIVE has grown into a global organization. We successfully navigated through COVID by adding virtual tutoring which has accelerated our ability to export JaxTHRIVE to multiple cities across the country and the world seven days a week. Our volunteer base has grown from 120 to close to almost 300 teens impacting approximately 225 refugee youth.
JaxTHRIVE has expanded their volunteer base as well as student population to other cities across the country and across the world. Virtual tutoring has afforded volunteers and students the opportunity to be available (24/7) thus expanding our impact. To further extend our reach, we partnered with several non-profit organizations across the country that also work in refugee education
