Event description

Description

Baltimore neighborhoods are dramatically different than they were 60 years ago. The Supreme Court’s decision in Brown v. Board of Education(1954), the Civil Rights Act of1968, and Baltimore’s loss of manufacturing jobs have caused neighborhoods that were once racially segregated but socioeconomically diverse to become polarized by both race and class. This disconnectedness has resulted in increased crime and poor educational and economic outcomes.

Thread weaves a new social fabric by connecting students, university and community-based volunteers, and collaborators. By radically and permanently reconfiguring the social support structure of all involved, Thread breaks the cycle of crime, poor educational and economic outcomes and replaces it with a new cycle of educational attainment, service and social well-being.

This happens through engaging 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. They foster students’ academic advancement and personal growth into self-motivated, resilient, and responsible citizens.

We'll be meeting at Daily Grind for an hour long coffee talk! Space is limited to 15 guests (ten 2019 Fellows & five Alumni) so if you reserve a ticket, please show up! If you register and can no longer attend, let us know so we can release your ticket to someone on the waitlist.

We look forward to seeing you there! Email give@businessvolunteersmd.org with questions or concerns.
