K-16 Fall Speaker: Sarah Hemminger – Nov 7

Posted by PHENND on October 1, 2019
Save the Date for our Fall Speaker, Sarah Hemminger, on November 7th, 2:00 – 4:00 PM at Saint Joseph’s University. Sarah is the CEO and co-founder of Thread in Baltimore, Maryland. 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. We are excited to have Sarah come to visit us and share Thread’s innovative approach to reconnecting communities and changing the educational and economic opportunities for Baltimore’s youth.
Want to know more about Thread? Check them out online or watch Sarah’s TEDx talk.
