The second cohort of the THRIVE Accelerator focused on helping organizations engage leading practices in program design, community engagement, board development, fundraising, storytelling, and HR/operations with a racial equity lens.  Organizations spent concentrated time (2 hours a week virtually for 9 weeks) planning and executing real-time solutions with guided facilitation. Teams of boards and staff came together to look at their organization holistically and then applied what they learned to their specific context. 

 

THRIVE was created through collaboration between The Collaboratory of Virginia and The Spark Mill, and Cohort 2 was sponsored by Carmax, Robins Foundation, and Virginia Community Capital.
