THRIVE is a Leadership Club that all Benson High School students are welcome to join. The mission of THRIVE is to "unite and equip loyal servant leaders with the right tools to overcome any obstacle by promoting diverse communities, integrity, and education." A typical meeting will include food, games, a motivational talk and discussion on an issue of character building, and time to make friends from around the world. Other opportunities include participation in community service, field trips, and gatherings with THRIVE Club chapters from other OPS high schools.
