Frederick Douglass High School
This month’s Second Saturday event will bring together VU, Teach for America and Thread to beautify and improve the facilities at Frederick Douglass High School. We will paint walls, murals, the Douglass logo and more. Others will be working in the school’s outdoor garden or helping with general upkeep. Stay tuned: Afterparty details still to come!
Teach for America expands opportunity for children by affecting profound systemic change by finding, developing and supporting a diverse network of leaders from classrooms, schools, and every sector and field in order to shape the broader system in which schools operate.
Thread engages 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. In addition, Thread fosters students’ academic advancement and personal growth into self-motivated, resilient, and responsible citizens.
