Common Threads hosts 85-100 high school aged youth for a 3-day retreat. Attendees are educated about ways to make their schools and communities safer for all youth regardless of sex, race, ethnicity, ability, sexual orientation and/or gender identity. Many of these wonderful young leaders cannot pay the full $175 that it costs to host them at the retreat. Please consider donating a full ($175) or partial scholarship so that a young person may participate in an experience that is empowering, educational and embraces them for being just who they are. For some participants Common Threads is the only place they feel comfortable being their true selves.
