*Must be located in Baltimore*

Volunteers make a one-year commitment and are expected to connect with their Thread students at least once a week. Some volunteers take on leadership roles by becoming a Head of Family or GrandParent. These volunteers receive additional training and become guides and coaches for other volunteers.

Becoming a Thread volunteer should be very similar to becoming someone’s friend. If you have time to make a new friend, you should have time for Thread!

Spending time with your Thread Family & student is critical for forming deep connections. We believe that simply establishing a meaningful relationship and overcoming barriers together will have a transformative impact on all members of Thread’s Community, including our volunteers!

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
