THRIVE Isla Vista is part of a county-wide public-private collaborative focused on preparing and readying the next generation of Santa Barbara county residents for productive lives. The Isla Vista collaborative aspires to close the readiness gap by ensuring all children entering Isla Vista school are "school-ready" and maintain that success third grade and beyond. We envision a community where all children are healthy, safe and achieve their highest potential in school. THRIVE Isla Vista works together to ensure young children are healthy, active learners and enter Kindergarten school ready. We provide a pathway of integrated services to families beginning prenatally.
The THRIVE Isla Vista Network is a group of organizations that work together to insure children, families and individuals have the necessary resources to be healthy and succeed. The Network provides assistance with the following areas; basic needs, childcare and early childhood education, adult education, financial assistance, health and wellness, family support, summer and after school programming and volunteer opportunities.
