tSB Interns get down and dirty

Internship at evo

| tSB News | No Comments

I think everyone is dying to know how we survived in blazing 85 degree heat and how the “city-slickers” fared with manual labor farming. You could say I’m normally the ‘eat food but don’t know where it comes from’ type of person but that day everything changed because I was ready to get down and dirty.

Recruiting Mentors

Mentor. A word with over fifty definitions if you search hard enough. In its most basic form, it means “A wise and trusted counselor or teacher.” Or in the transitive form, “to serve as a trusted counselor or teacher.” But strict definitions of a word can hardly begin to explain what it truly means to be a mentor.

Personal impact

"One of the greatest things I got from tSB is to 'push your growing edges.' You had to step out of your own bubble, you need to try new things, and it was okay through the process to fail and fall because that's how you learn to grow and better yourself."

− Maryyah T., tSB alumna

"The Service Board helped me realize that having goals and mentors are pivotal to the art of living and you should never take life for granted because you never know who you might meet or what you might accomplish."

− Julius D., tSB alumnus

"the Service Board program is ambitious, consciousness-raising and fun. (Our son) embraced it with enthusiasm and benefitted immeasurably. In fact, our entire family has grown through this experience and we are thrilled to have found this wonderful organization to support!"

− Kathryn B., tSB parent

"tSB is a place where everyone is loved. It’s a place where I can express myself freely. In this program, people taught me that it’s okay to speak my mind and be myself around others. tSB is where you are around other people who want to be around you."

− Angela K., tSB alumna

"tSB taught me what a community is, what a family truly is, and how to care for others and myself. Because of tSB, I have become more outspoken and a leader others can depend on."

− Tammy L., tSB alumna
