Calling all volunteers!
Don’t have enough time to commit to tSB full-time? Still want to get involved? The Service Board always needs able and willing volunteers to help with Wednesday dinners and snowboard instruction. Even a stray appearance at a service project will be enough to give you the warm and fuzzies on the inside. Contact us to find out how you can get involved!
It’s that time of the year! We are now officially accepting applications for mentors and prophets alike. Can’t commit to being a mentor but still want to help? Fill out the volunteer application and send it our way: info[at]theserviceboard.org
The Service Board operates by scouting Seattle and the rest of the world for the best mentors and prophets. What does that mean? Everyone is encouraged to apply! In the past, we have had community leaders, local politicians, music producers, designers and photographers and former olympiads grace The Service Board with their presence. With diverse backgrounds and life experiences, our mentors and prophets bring more diversity and ‘exotic ingredients’ to add to the tSB stew.

The Service Board needs you!
Seattle is a dynamic city with numerous resources for young people. But many kids have no positive role models—they can’t name a single person who wants them to learn more, to like being who they are, and to learn about what really counts. Without that one person (or 35 people in the case of TSB!) young people can too often slip through the cracks. TSB turns kids on to their own abilities, teaches them to try crazy new things (making sandwiches for the homeless, riding a chair lift), and instills in them the love and understanding of 30 other people, experiencing common joys, jokes, and sadness. We connect kids to what counts in themselves and others. They leave tSB’s six-month program fired up to make a positive impact in their community.
123 Business underwriting is a critical part of The Service Board. We have received over half a million dollars in donated goods over the years, from art supplies to snowboards. Each year, this means at least 50% of TSB’s budget comes as in-kind goods from small, local businesses to enormous (but nice) multinational corporations.
Have you ever been an athletic supporter? Now’s your chance! Contact us to find out about supporting TSB with product donations. Not only do you get to be featured on the website, we promise loads of thank yous and all kinds of surprises.
