About Us

Our Mission

the Service Board (tSB) mentors teens to conquer personal and cultural challenges through outdoor adventure, environmental and social justice education, and public service.

What We Do

We provide Seattle teenagers with a safe space where their voices are heard, where they are valued, where they find a supportive community, and where they are encouraged to thrive.

tSB helps youth discover their own potential to affect change through social justice workshops and service projects. tSB fills every weekend with adventure; whether it’s a first ride on a chair lift or a first trip to a homeless shelter, our students are consistently presented with opportunities for growth.

Finally, tSB provides youth with a network of 50+ other people to support them at every stage of their development. Our youth graduate from our six-month program with a sense of personal and cultural empowerment and a passion for making a positive impact in their communities.

We believe that together, we're better. Much better. Our collective strength is what leads to our greatest impact and success. Our secret sauce is facilitating an intensive mentoring approach between positive adult mentors and youth that is grounded in deeply authentic and reciprocal relationships. Built through shared experiences on the mountain, in program, and in the mutual journey of self-discovery and empowerment, the relationships in our organization's community embrace love, compassion, unbridled fun, and the complexity of life.
