Thread is focused on engaging the most at-risk high school freshmen by weaving together a support network of volunteers who customize support to meet student need in whatever form needed. The support network surrounds the student for a decade (all of high school plus six years post-high school graduation). Thread’s model seeks to radically reconfigure social support structures for students enrolled to “establish a wealth of human connection, permanently linked by unconditional love and support.” This Management Assistance Grant provided funds for a strategic planning consultant.
