the project

At Teachers Supporting Teachers Everywhere Inc. (TSTE Inc), our project is centered around the belief that "Healthy teachers make better teachers." We're passionate about enhancing teacher wellness to not only empower educators but also catalyze positive change within our communities. Through our TSTE Workplace Wellness Program, we aim to provide teachers in multiple Detroit schools (Clara Barton Elementary, East English Village Preparatory Academy at Finney and Jalen Rose Leadership Academy) with the support they need to show up as their best selves while serving the neighborhoods in which they teach.

Our program isn't just about snacks and check-ins, it's about creating a holistic road map for teacher well-being. By fostering physical, mental and emotional wellness through regular check-ins, interactive activities, and practical tools we're not only investing in educators but also sowing the seeds for a more vibrant, resilient, and compassionate community. Your support isn't just a donation, it's a contribution to a brighter future where teachers thrive, students flourish, and our communities prosper. Join us on this journey to nurture teachers and strengthen our communities, one wellness initiative at a time.


the steps

Essential steps TSTE Inc will take to provide snacks during the TSTE Workplace Wellness Program:

1. Budget Allocation - Allocate funds for snacks for each school hosting a Workplace Wellness Program.

2.Dietary Considerations - Accommodate dietary restrictions and preferences to the best of our ability.

3.Vendor Selection - Choose reliable vendors for nutritious snack supply.

4.Documentation - Keep records of snack expenses and feedback.

5. Transparency - Maintain budget transparency for stakeholders.

By following these steps, TSTE Inc. ensures seamless snack provision, enhancing the overall wellness program experience for participants.
