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

The Thrive Initiative is a suite of evidence-informed parenting programs that are designed to empower parents and caregivers as they nurture children from birth 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 is divided into developmentally age-appropriate areas and consists of four universal parenting programs and two targeted parenting programs. The four universal Thrive Initiative programs are available in online formats and immediate access to programming is granted to parents and caregivers. The universal face-to-face and targeted programs are delivered by professionals in an in-person format.

The programs are owned by the Federal Government, and the online universal programs are available at no cost to military and civilian families.
