What People Are Saying About Us

"I believe the Thiebaut Method's youth's social good projects transform not only youth, but impels families and the larger community towards social action. The youth models engagement, caring for others, self-efficacy through action, determination, skill development, and the joy of giving. Families and community members practice social good by supporting the youth and this practice may motivate their own social good efforts going forward. The youth has involved them, inspired them, and taught them how."

-Melissa Wilson, Commissioner of San Mateo County Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Commission

"Teaching underserved youth how to help others in need is teaching him/her how to change a community. You are teaching that young person how to be a leader in the community by showing people how to take care of each other. This can be contagious which could lead to an “underserved “ community banding together to lift each other up."

-Jeff Liu, Commander of East Palo Alto Police
