History

Established in 1997 by a mother and her daughter, Teens In Public Service provides Seattle area teenagers with an opportunity to work in charitable organizations while providing a dependable workforce to non-profit organizations at no cost to the organizations. With just 11 interns working in 7 organizations in its first year, TIPS has expanded to include 60 teen interns selected to serve the community in over 40 non-profits during the summer months. By educating teens concerning the needs in their community during their formative years of 15-19, Teens In Public Service enhances youth development when they are establishing their values and beliefs.
