Thread engages underperforming high school students confronting significant barriers outside of the classroom by providing each one with a family of committed volunteers and increased access to community resources. We foster students’ academic advancement and personal growth into self-motivated, resilient, and responsible citizens.

Thread’s approach, from the students we engage to the depth, breadth, and duration of the support we provide, is unprecedented. By creating a new social fabric, where relationships are woven strong among students, volunteers and collaborators, Thread fundamentally alters how we define “family” and cultivates communities that transcend barriers, creating a future where everyone thrives.

Thread Community

At the core of the Thread Community Model is a student, engaged during his freshman year of high school. As a student spends time in the Thread Community, he forms deep and meaningful relationships with other students, volunteers, and collaborators. Relationships are the heart of what we do at Thread.

Our Thread community is hard-working, collaborative, and passionate about building community in Baltimore. We go all in with care, compassion, and empathy. We believe small acts make a big difference. Thread’s home base is located inside the TouchPoint Baltimore, a co-working space at Mondawmin Mall.
