Caitlan is a tSB LifeSaver!

By | Show Love | No Comments


Caitlan Grassi is a Cherry lifesaver for tSB Staff! She has spent numerous hours cleaning and organizing our gear basement spent days in our office inputting data and making thank you cards, and has been a go-to server at our events. When in doubt we know we can rely on her.

Caitlan quietly gets things done but tSB notices!

We love you Caitlan for rolling up your sleeves and doing whatever we need–especially the smiles.

Thank you for being a volunteer shoulder that we can lean on!

Invitation to Cook for tSB & Be a Meal Team Volunteer!

By | tSB News | No Comments
All of our volunteers are critical to the functioning of the Service Board, but a Meal Team volunteer  serves in a special capacity. As you may know, tSB’s success is reliant on the depth of the relationship between mentors and youth. Our Meal Team Volunteers provide opportunities for our mentors and youth to bond while sharing a homemade meal on a Program, Service and/or Snowboard Day.
We’d like to share our Program Calendar and Meal needs with you to ask you to commit to one, two or as many meals as you are able by Friday January 31st. While logistics will be communicated with you after you have signed up for a date, essentially what you need to know is that we’ll provide the budget and you (or you and a group of your friends/family) make the food for a specified date listed on this Google Document. Please enter in ALL information, including phone number and email.
Thank you in advance to supporting the Service Board in this capacity. You will receive a confirmation email with more information within ten days of signing up for a specific date. If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact me at 206-324-7771 or email volunteer@theserviceboard.org.
We look forward to eating your delicious food!!

Peer Leader As the snow falls in the mountains, the candles are lit and the trees decorated we at tSB would like to take a moment to focus on a few of our favorite things.

First and foremost YOU.  All of you who make up this big diverse tSB family of ours. Whether near or far you make tSB a success. Our Mentors!  This year we have 10 (mostly ) new mentors who are willing to give their time and energy to grow and learn with tSB youth. Our Youth! 2013 will usher in the 18th year of tSB and we have 35 fresh faces ready to go on the tSB adventure with us. On a mountain or in Washington Hall they are willing to push themselves to new heights. Our awesome volunteer Snowboard Instructors—without you we would never get to our feet!  All of our great volunteers and interns; we couldn’t fill our bellies, wax our boards, or get any pretty pictures without your tireless efforts.  The Board! Without you working behind the scenes, tSB, well, just wouldn’t be.  And don’t think we could forget our Peer Leaders! Those amazing youth who work so hard to plan program, train mentors, and be exemplar leaders for  everyone.  All of these things make  tSB. the Service Board  is hands down our favorite thing because as one of our Peer Leaders put ittSB makes me feel like a family. That has my back no matter what. ” 

Thanks for always having our back and may your holidays be filled with love!

Soiree Success

By | tSB News | No Comments

We would like to express a tremendous amount of gratitude to our community for making our recent event such a success. With your help, we raised over $60,000 for our 2013 program which will kick off in January.

Right now our mentors and Peer Leaders are training and planning for the coming year. Our interns are making work plans and preparing equipment. There is snow coming down in the mountains. As we reflect on the challenges and accomplishments of 2012 and prepare for what’s next, please know we could not do it without you!

Applications available!

Hit us up if you have any questions. We can’t wait to hear from you!

Art in the Park

By | tSB News | No Comments

Sunday was a great day! tSB family, friends, peer leaders, mentors, alumni, and potential Prophets (1st year students) put their creative hands and minds to use to finish an intricate art mural at the Delridge skate park. What an awesome way to give back to the neighborhood we call home! After 5 hours of working in the last of Seattle’s summer sun, we put the finishing touches onto the tile mosaic.


This Saturday will be Delridge Day, and the official opening of the Delridge Skate Park. Come visit us and witness the awesome legitness of tSB art yourself. We’ll be there, so come around and get to know us!
