What Others Are Saying About TM
"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

Meet Our Youth Leaders
Our youth do Social Good Projects (SGPs) based on issues they intrinsically care about

About Citlaly: 5th grader Citlaly went out into her community to pass out 100 hygiene kits that benefited 150 people in need. With support from mentors, she has learned how to approach the unhoused with dignity and respect. Citlaly now wants to start a nonprofit when she grows up.
Active Service Project: Train 6 peers how to address homeless
Leadership Area: STEM
About Leo: 7th grader Leo started out hesitant to help others. By teaching two classes about video game design, one of his top passions, Leo realized he enjoys helping kids learn about computer technology.

Support Our Youth Leaders
We rely on donations from individuals, foundations, local businesses, corporations and more to offer our Social Good Project (SGP) program to youth.
Please consider helping our youth do social good by donating resources, sponsoring a youth, or making a gift to support our staff in working with youth every week.
If you would like to learn more please email us firstname.lastname@example.org.
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. email@example.com.
