WeThrive is a program in which near-peer mentors (undergraduate university students) lead middle-school aged youth from under-resourced communities in the creation of a business venture, mentoring them and teaching them critical life skills along the way. WeThrive strives to hack the poverty cycle for children born in the bottom two-fifths of the economic distribution. WeThrive programming is active within New York City, Los Angeles, Boston and Oakland. WeThrive has been selected as an Echoing Green Fellow, 2017 Forbes 30 Under 30 List, and featured in Boston Business Journal.
