We strive to teach our students the importance of family, community, and social awareness.
How TCB Started
TCB’s founder was 19 when he found himself scammed by a door-to-door sales company and was stranded 2,000 miles away from home. But as he puts it, God intervened! He was introduced to an after school youth work/mentoring program. This program taught young people how to regain control of the unimaginable circumstances that being born into a life of poverty had to offer them. The students worked in groups and sold newspaper subscriptions door-to-door after school. For their efforts, they were able to earn money, scholarships, trophies and trips. It was a truly awesome experience! So after three years on the west coast, he decided to bring the skills that he learned back home to help the struggling kids in his community. Once back in Michigan, he spent the next 10 years working with a more seasoned group that had resources, but Thomas had a larger vision. He branched out on to his own in January of 2013.
