About Us

Kids Thrive is Victoria’s leading arts and community development organisation committed to child-led social change.

Our vision is for all children to thrive and be empowered to lead creative community change. We nourish connections between children and their local communities, develop children’s leadership skills, build their resilience and foster their capacity to drive positive change.

Our purpose is to foster positive outcomes for children and their communities by developing innovative arts and social justice programs in collaboration with specialists in children’s education, health, welfare and cultural diversity. We use the arts to tackle issues that children experience arising from trauma, disadvantage and cultural conflict, and to expand children’s creativity, communication and social skills.

Our programs are delivered in schools, community health centres and other safe and supportive, child-focused community settings throughout Victoria. They prepare children for a lifetime of self-determination, creative problem solving and community connection.
