BOZEMAN -

An organization that helps kids grow and succeed is celebrating 25 years of its school mentoring program.

Thrive's Child Advancement Project program also known as CAP teams up students with volunteers who then work with them for one hour a week during school.

Volunteers help students with academics and provide social and even emotional support.

Since the program started, 9,000 students have participated in the program.

"It's very fulfilling to feel that you're making a difference in your community," said Sarah Stiff, CAP program manager. "The kids are always excited for their mentors to come. It's something they look forward to every week."

Thrive will hold celebration Thursday in honor of its quarter-century anniversary. It will take place at the office on Babcock in Bozeman from 5-7 p.m.
