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. The Thread community is committed to ending social isolation and building a more equitable culture in which everyone thrives. Thread achieves these goals by connecting at-risk high school students with groups of university and community-based volunteers and collaborators to provide customized support to help the student thrive. Thread gives volunteers the opportunity to longitudinally support a student through their entire high school experience.
