Fellows do not have prior formal health training. Thrive! Fellows receive ten hours of training and weekly supervision. They lead the group-based intervention sessions within the schools. Prior research has shown that Thrive! Fellows are effective—thorough, skill-full, clear, and adherent to protocol—at delivering the Shamiri intervention.
