From 2020 to 2021, the Order of the Arrow suffered its most significant membership loss to date of 23,969 people. The Thrive initiative brings that decline to a halt, ushering in the Order of the Arrow’s second century of growth where it matters most — the local level.

Leaders from the chapter to national levels committed to this reality on October 19, 2019 through an interactive webinar, launching Thrive as the roadmap for developing high performing lodges. Now, Thrive delivers transformational coaching to achieve breakthroughs toward success in local lodges.

In order to give lodges the mentorship they need to deliver on their plan toward high performance, the National Order of the Arrow Committee is proud to recognize a coaching program to inspire grassroots change — Thrive Connect.

Through a customized, unique approach, lodges enroll in a partnership, discover the largest obstacles inhibiting growth, develop a laser-focused strategy to overcome them, and create long-term breakthroughs to achieve high performance.

At Momentum: Discover, Thrive Connect officially launched nationwide after working with 19 lodges during the past year.
