Philadelphia Foundation is sharing news of this event from one of our community partners within the GPCVC.
Sarah Hemminger, CEO and co-founder of Thread in Baltimore, Md., is PHENND’s K-16 Partnership Network’s Fall speaker. PHENND (Philadelphia Higher Education Network for Neighborhood Development) is excited to share this innovative approach to reconnecting communities and changing the educational and economic opportunities for Baltimore’s youth.
Thread works with under-performing 9th grades students in Baltimore City Schools and surrounds them with a family of volunteers over the course of ten years. About two-thirds of the volunteers are college students from the Baltimore region, including Johns Hopkins and Morgan State.
