- About TEEEM -

TEEEM -- The Empathy, Equality, Entrepreneurship Mission -- teaches students about global issues and humanitarianism through empathy and entrepreneurship. A local non-profit organization, TEEEM fulfills this mission by connecting New Jersey high school students with various organizations around the world. In conjunction with learning how to comprehend and tackle global issues, these partnerships cultivate meaningful, rewarding experiences for students as they make an authentic impact on the world.

TEEEM’s New Jersey schools and their international partners support tens of thousands of people by treating patients, feeding children, educating students, empowering women, building infrastructure, and providing hope. Because all operational costs are funded by private donors, 100% of all donations go directly to supporting our sites. It is the generosity of donors, sponsors, and partners that help propel TEEEM’s mission to create a better world through empathy, equality, and entrepreneurship.
