"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
