Parenting Programs for Parents and Caregivers of Children 0-18 Years

The Thrive Initiative is a continuum of evidence-informed parenting programs that are designed to empower parents and caregivers as they nurture children from the prenatal period until 18 years of age. The Initiative includes a series of face-to-face and online parenting programs and a range of online resources and interactive learning modules to meet the families where they are. The Thrive Initiative programs incorporate blended and multimodal learning environments into the program delivery modes by using text, videos and interactive learning formats. The programs are owned by the federal government, and the online universal programs are available at no cost to military and civilian families.

The Thrive Initiative is divided into developmentally age-appropriate areas and consists of four universal parenting programs and two targeted parenting programs for high-needs populations. The four universal Thrive Initiative programs are available in online formats at no cost to parents and caregivers.
