Thrive program offers students a creative and educational experience after school

Finding ways to provide a constructive way to use time is a challenge for some kids after school in a small town, but a new program is working to offer that in Mount Vernon.

Thrive is hosted every weekday at First United Methodist Church at Wesley Hall, and in its short existence, it seems to be making a difference.

The mission statement is to enable every child in the Mount Vernon community to reach their highest potential and be their truest self by providing afterschool programming that is holistic in its approach.
