SERVE AS A FAMILY MEMBER
https://www.thread.org/get-involved/volunteer/

Volunteering with Thread can take many forms, but most of our volunteers serve as Thread Family Members (FM), and their activities can include nearly everything you might expect a family would do together. Family Members work directly with Thread student(s) and other volunteers to form an extended network of care and support around the student and each other. This may include rides to school, homework and resume help, discussion of career options, or just hanging out. In the midst of COVID-19 we have adapted all of our work to be virtual making it easier to volunteer with us than ever!

About Thread

Mission Statement

Thread harnesses the power of relationships to create a new social fabric of diverse individuals deeply engaged with young people facing the most significant opportunity and achievement gaps. Our community is committed to ending social isolation and building a more equitable culture in which everyone thrives.

Description

Thread is changing the fabric of Baltimore - and the future. Just this year, 527 students and alumni, 1200+ volunteers and 400+ collaborators have spent over 30,000 hours together, building relationships that transcend barriers and enrich the lives of everyone involved. Thread students have performed thousands of hours of community service, primarily in Baltimore City, but also globally, joining our volunteers and collaborators as they become the next generation of agents of change. The relationships that Thread has woven have given our students an even greater opportunity to defy the odds
