tSB Interns get down and dirty

Internship at evo

By | 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.

tSB Snowboard Instructor Training!

By | tSB News | No Comments

Last weekend we partnered with Stevens Pass Mountain Resort ski school to provide half of our Snowboard Instructor volunteers with teaching training. Despite being freezing cold, our Instructors came away with better tools to coach our youth this year: shared terminology, a learning progression, new games to teach skills, basic safety lessons and ways to give feedback. Plus we all became stronger riders.

Day of Caring, Day of Service, Day of Gratitude

By | tSB News | No Comments

Yesterday, United Way of King County hosted its annual Day of Caring Event and the Service Board was lucky enough to have their project selected. Yesterday, we hosted 23 volunteers from Microsoft’s User Experience – Bing Division. Their mission: help tSB reorganize our equipment and apparel from our basement to gear up for our snowboarding season.

For those of you who have seen our basement, you know this was quite the undertaking…but nothing that this group couldn’t handle.  For four  hours, we moved, sorted, compiled and played with our gear.

A big shout out to our handy volunteers who moved furniture, built new organizing systems, folded clothes
and especially to those that weren’t afraid to get a little dirty!

 

 

 

We honestly couldn’t have done any of this without you. We want to extend a huge thank-you to everyone that came out to support #tSB to help us get organized for our winter program during the #dayofcaring.
