THREADS focuses on factors that promote positive academic and social growth for young males. The THREADS program achieves these goals through matching undergraduates with middle school boys in a weekly activities-based format.  The program aims to cultivate an environment where middle school boys and their undergraduate mentors can talk about and strategize around issues that affect the boys’ behavior, development, future goals, and identity with school.

What does THREADS stand for?


TRUTH: Helping boys truly evaluate themselves, their world, and their place in it.

HONOR: Understanding the value in honoring community and culture.

RESPECT: For self, women, and authority figures.

EDUCATION: Promoting academic identity and achievement.

AND: Because there is always more room to grow.

DEVELOPMENT OF SELF: Commitment to personal improvement as an individual and a social being.
