Our Impact

2022-2023 SCHOOL YEAR

In Schools

Our Life Coaches work in schools year round to help vulnerable youth see their potential and achieve their goals. Our Life Coaches are carefully chosen professionals with college degrees, knowledge and experience in working with vulnerable youth. See how our team is making positive influences in our youth.


We have served 611 vulnerable youth across North Texas this school year.


This school year, 53 of our youth graduated!


One hundred percent of the youth we worked with graduated or successfully completed their school year! 


According to the TEA, more than 732,000 youth considered at-risk in North Texas.

Our Youth

Many of the youth we serve are in survival mode and from underserved communities. We believe that youth, no matter what their background, can accomplish great things. We see the difference a consistent influence can have on their lives.


92% of our youth report feeling more hopeful about their futures.


89% of our youth report positive personal changes.


83% of our youth report improvements in their overall lives.


91% of our youth report learning healthy coping skills through Together We Thrive. 

Our Investment

We believe that our youth deserve our best, so we are intentional about investing our best time, resources, and talents in them every week.


Our Life Coaches have invested more than 3,250 hours with our youth this school year.


Our Life Coaches have facilitated nearly 2,900 one-on-one or group sessions with youth this school year.


Our volunteers have invested 135 hours in area schools this year.


Many of our youth are food insecure. We provide snacks to meet a tangible need during our time together. This year, we have provided more than 4,880 snacks for area youth.


Hydration plays an important part in youths’ ability to learn. We always have water available for our youth. We have provided more than 2,500 waters for youth this school year.


Our youth can’t learn when they are hungry, and many of our youth wonder where their next meal will come from. This year, we have provided 215 meals for youth we serve.

Community Partners

The real successes are not because of our organization, but the collaborations with our service partners, local companies, congregations, restaurants, and retailers that have gotten behind us, and most importantly, YOU, our supporters.

Principal Brooks speaks to the impact of Together We Thrive being on campus and the Life Coaches influence on the students.

“I was blown away by the mission in which Together We Thrive performs daily. The passion in which they show is remarkable. Homeless and at-risk students are forgotten within our community, but Together We Thrive is deep in the trenches serving. They are vital to the community and hundreds of students have benefited because of their efforts.”
