MCs On A Mission

By | tSB News | No Comments

January marks a the beginning of a new year and a new class of tSBers. Our Peer Leaders (2nd-year students) and Mentors have been kicking into high gear since the start of fall to ready up for 2012. Between work and schooling, their calendars have been filled with team-building workshops, leadership trainings, curriculum planning nights, and a number of other meetings, all for the love of tSB and the passion to make every year a catalytic experience in social change. Now that we’ve finally selected our class of 2012, we’re happy to say that the tSB season is ready to kick off! What better way to do it than by launching our fourth MCs On A Mission project?

Check out our newest video by tSB volunteer Sheldon Botler. We’re feelin’ his dance moves. If you are too, make a donation to tSB to support our 2012 Program and help us spread the word!

Kore Ionz, a Seattle-based band with members from around the globe, blend roots reggae with rock and world rhythms to produce music with a conscious message. They also consistently show the love to tSB, and recently got some love of their own in a profile from The Seattle Times.

Led by former mentor and current tSB board member Daniel Pak – who also serves as an instructor at Rock School – you can catch Kore Ionz at venues around the Pacific Northwest.
