Donor Highlight

Sheri Sobrato Brisson

Trustee, Sobrato Family Foundation

"I have known Paul Thiebaut III and his team at Thiebaut Method Tutoring (Formerly, 10 Books A Home) since I had the great fortune of meeting one of Thiebaut Method’s enthusiastic board members who purchased one of my daughter’s rainbow brownies at her very first bake sale. When we got to talking about the innovative early learning model based on intrinsic learning motivations offered by volunteers to low-income students in East Palo Alto, I just had to make a visit to the little pink house in EPA."

Stakeholder Highlight

US Congresswoman

Jackie Speier

Congresswoman Speier visited our TM youth at our Pink House in East Palo Alto and offered to mentor them! She met Citlaly Arroyo, whose work with the unhoused has been featured in a article and Kevin Mendoza whose STEM program has been featured in a article. Speier learned about TM through another TM youth's social good project that was featured in an article in the San Mateo Daily Journal. She wrote this letter of recognition to our youth Cinthya, then paid us a visit.

Community Partners

“Peery Foundation is excited to partner with 10 Books A Home. The organization is addressing a really critical need and doing what no one else is doing in the community. The program offers access to quality early education and engagement for the whole family. It is making a profound impact on 3- to 5-year-olds, their siblings, and parents. It could be surprising to some that an organization can deliver its program through volunteers just as effectively as it would through paid professional tutors.”
