Peer to Peer Empowerment

The Thrive Tribe has provided assistance, consultation, and support to thousands of men. Our new member orientations are provided free of charge and provide a safe open forum for positive men to share their experiences, concerns and successes with another poz-brother. Thousands of these peer-to-peer orientations have helped us build real-world tools and strategies to assist each subsequent member navigate their HIV journey with ease and support.

Our educational seminars, forums, and online outreach have literally helped thousands of positive and negative men impacted by HIV. We provide a fresh, up-to-date perspective on HIV in the modern era that builds on lessons learned and provides fact-based counsel to overcome fear and mis-information. The goal is not only to help positive men realize the benefits of life-saving treatments but to remain in the continuity of care for their well being and to stop the spread of the virus.

Newly Diagnosed Mentor Program

Newly Diagnosed Mentor Program

The Tribe Members want to assist those newly diagnosed or not in treatment make informed decisions about their needs. We make a commitment to the newly diagnosed and those who need advice regarding the sometimes-difficult decision to start medication. Our positive peers offer advice, guidance and support along the journey. Giving back to each other and our community is part of our calling and we encourage everyone to pay it forward.
20% of the new members meet us either out of care or never having started – 90+% of us are eventually in and remain committed to the continuum of care. We achieve this impressive result through our partnerships and learning from members real-world experiences. We cut through the bureaucracy and red tape.

Isolation Reduction Social Events

Isolation Reduction Social Events

We love to have fun! There is a healing that happens at our events, which is difficult to describe – you just have to experience it. We do all types of social events that offer a chance to meet other guys in person, enjoy a safe fun time, and network with other men. Monthly bowling, potlucks, movie nights and hikes are some of the favorites but we literally have something happening several days a week. Members are encouraged to bring along other friends to our events but there are plenty of new friends to make.

The Tribe has a “leave-no-one-behind” mentality and tries to never deny a member due to financial strain. Members often generously donate tickets to events for those in need.

When men come to these social events and interact with other healthy, fun, professional men who are living their lives, the healing force is incredible.

Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer Opportunities

As you can see, we have a lot to accomplish and need all the support we can find. We are fortunate to be able to tap our most valuable resource – the time, talents and efforts of the members. We have hundreds of opportunities every year to be as involved as anyone wants to be in a volunteer capacity.

During the Orientation, we ask the new member about their talents, skills, and connections; which can help The Thrive Tribe achieve its mission and strategic vision for the community. We firmly believe, and our members prove all the time, the best asset in our organization is the desire for everyone to give back and be of service to each other.
