TIPS was recognized by the Evergreen State Society at the 2003 Awards held at The Seattle Center that spring. TIPS was one of nine organizations honored for “exemplifying the spirit of unwavering and inventive commitment to mission and service that animates the supporters, volunteers, and staff”. The award was given in recognition of positive connections established between the energies of teenagers and the needs in the community. The award recognized that TIPS successfully opens doors to community service for students across King County. In a time of reduced employment opportunities for teens and increasing needs in the non-profit world, the program has expanded, allowing nearly 60 placements during the 2003 program year. These teens help fill the workforce gap in dozens of non-profits. By exposing teens to service and volunteerism at a time when they are forming their values, TIPS works to create a generation of socially aware and committed leaders.
