Thread Together Future Leaders - vacation care sydney melbourne

Thread Together Future Leaders

A Fun Day Out with a Difference!

Thread Together has a simple goal: To deliver quality clothing and shoes to those in the community who are doing it tough. Clothing not only protects us from the elements, but helps shape our confidence, dignity and motivation – and that has the power to turn lives around. Thread Together was born from the belief that access to clothing could create brighter futures for those doing it tough and is the only charity in Australia with the sole purpose being the provision of brand new clothes, for free, to people in need.

Designed to help grow the next generation of empathetic leaders, Thread Together invites schools to bring their students to the Thread Together warehouse and Community Centre for an excursion or vacation care leadership workshop and clothes sorting activity.

Being involved in charitable work helps children to understand their own privilege, and the responsibility it brings. It demonstrates that showing compassion for others makes them a better and stronger leader that people will want to support. The result is a powerful boost in self-esteem to realise they have the power to be a leader and make difference in someone’s life.

Program inclusions:

  • Welcome and introduction to Thread Together
  • Leadership Workshop
  • Representative from Thread Together or partner organisation to explain the benefit of their work done that day
  • Clothes sorting
  • Morning tea or afternoon tea depending on excursion time.
