11 TM youth have helped 875 people in partnership with 130 volunteer partners from Feb-Sep 2021


Thiebaut (tebow) Method is an East Palo Alto-based nonprofit founded in 2009 that teaches underserved youth in grades 4-8 how to help others in their community. By helping others, youth develop leadership, career, moral, academic, and other life skills. Unique to TM, youth help through Social Good Projects (SGPs), which empower them to become community service leaders by designing and leading service projects based on issues they personally care about.

We rely on donations from individuals, foundations, local businesses, corporations and more to offer our Social Good Project (SGP) program to youth.

Become a Mentor or Volunteer

Youth work with mentors and volunteers to achieve their social good projects (SGP).

Mentors are experts in the areas that relate to the SGP so that youth can develop valuable career skills and aspirations in the process of helping others.

Volunteers work with youth on a weekly basis on other aspects of their projects, such as making donation calls and flyers.

Please email us to learn about being a mentor or volunteer. socialgood@thiebautmethod.org.
